Bits and Pics

MORE STUFF TO COME

Some nice sites (others exist also) are at https://www.aip.org/history-programs/niels-bohr-library/oral-histories/browse and http://ep-news.web.cern.ch/content/interview-George-Zweig. At Los Alamos and the University of Maryland, College Park, I got to meet some favorite people like Vern Cottles [knew Vern--two years ahead of him--way back at Columbia in NYC], Ron Christian (The Bear), great friend and poker group player for years....I miss him very much....,Harold Agnew (best Los Alamos Director ever), George Zweig (should have shared Nobel Prize in Physics), Hans Bethe, Pete Carruthers, Nick Metropolis (office next to mine, exteremly nice to me), Stan Ulam, Geoff West, Sig Hecker (second best Los Alamos Director ever), Pete Miller (gave me a shot at LANL HBCU Program Manager), Mitch Feigenbaum (smartest guy I have ever met), Carroll Alley, Betty Simes (fantastic assistant...I miss her very much), Jack F. Barnes (when I became a T-Division manager, Jack told me "Them is Us" ), Jim N. Johnson, Chuck Forest, Ben Attencio (San Ildefonso Pueblo), Chuck Mader, Joe Sucher, George Snow (broke me in on the latest and greatest in particle physics), Dave Peaslee, Fred Zachariasen, Francis Harlow, Mike Nieto, Jim Friar, Chuck Zemach (taught me how to be a "diplomat"), Terry Goldman (nicely told me when my "New Orleans" accent when applied to reference names and when presentation length was screwed up), Gene McCall, Gerry Guralnik, Jim Barefield (loves his fishing...I just liked beer and outdoors and watching him fish!), Howard Laster (best Physics Chairmn ever), Ralph Menikoff  (great friend and colleague and grand master of physics and mathematics), and of course my great, defining UMCP postdoc advisor Professor Sadao Oneda (in a favorite watering hole near the UMCP campus , I met with Carroll and Sadao and wound up switching from quantum electronics to non-perturbative particle physics!) and his fantastic family.

My Boss (Group Leader Chuck Mader) let me do "my thing" after T-14 business was concluded.

A bug I picked up (lodged in my back..would occasionally come to my back's surface as it required air) while visiting a very successful Benin/USAID installation. After returning home (barely made it), one of my daughters (ocean engineer and now an epidemiologist) squeezed it out...rest of the family panicked...HaHa..I was able to keep it alive for several months lodged between two sheets of bounty towel paper...when dry it would hibernate...when wet, that rascal could really move. Needless to say, I was quite sick and eventually required Cipro to cure my ailments....
