Neal's 80th birthday. Richard Neal was associated with Stanford University and SLAC for over 35 years. He was one of the main physicists in charge of the design and construction of the Mark III 1 GeV Electron Linear Accelerator at the High Energy Physics Laboratory at Stanford, and then the Director of the SLAC Technical Division, responsible for the construction and operation of the SLAC three kilometer-long linear accelerator until 1985, when he retired.

Robert Oppenheimer, Ph. D. 1933; also attended University of Michigan Summer Symposium in Theoretical Physics, 1929. Between her Ph. D. and her first college faculty position (Connecticut College for Women, 1937-1938) she held postdoctoral fellowships at University of California, Bryn Mawr College and the Institute for Advanced Study. With the exception of a period of war-time teaching at the University of Minnesota, she taught at Brooklyn College from 1938 to 1952, when she was fired for not cooperating with the McCarran Committee. During her period of unemployment she coauthored 2 textbooks, Classical Electricity and Magnetism (with Wolfgang Panofsky) and Principles of Physical Science (with Francis Bonner). In 1957 she was brought to Washington University in St. Louis by Edward U. Condon to run the Academic Year Institute program there. From 1962 until her retirement in 1972, she was professor of physics at the University of Chicago. She has long been active in the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) serving as its President in 1966 and as its Executive Officer in recent years; comments on AAPT's role and problems. She also gives her views on physics and physicists today, including the experience of women physicists in the U.S11ocn083716264mix1983Dicke, Robert HResponse to Laser History Project SurveyFile includes: a scientific autobiography in which Dicke describes his early interest in math and science; his high school education; his college studies at the University of Rochester under Lee A. Dubridge and Frederick Seitz, at whose suggestion he transferred to Princeton University in 1937. Dicke describes his encounters at the Institute for Advanced Study with Albert Einstein, Eugene Wigner, Isidor I. Rabi, Niels Bohr, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac, and Leo Szilard; and his work with fellow students David Frisch, Ray Emerich, and Hans and Wolfgang Panofsky. Dicke recounts his graduate work at the University of Rochester in nuclear physics under Victor Weisskopf; his work during World War II at the Radiation Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he invented "chirp" radar, coherent pulse and monopulse radar, and the microwave radiometer; his work after the war at Princeton University with microwave measurements and photo-ionization of sodium atoms; his later interests in gravitation, Mach's Principle, scalar-tensor theory, geophysics, and astrophysics. File also includes a list of publications, a list of patents, a curriculum vitae, and a survey of Dicke's unpublished materials11ocn079655145mix1964Stanford Linear Accelerator CenterDraft of April press conference with Joyce (Vice-President Pacific Gas & Electric), Panofsky (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center), Seaborg (Atomic Energy Commission), and Terman (Acting President Stanford)11ocn084004533mix1987Sands, Matthew LOral history interview with Matthew L.
