The long-lived K meson was discovered at Brookhaven.
In 1971 I returned to the University of Chicago as Professor of Physics.
Our whole family assembles in Chicago at Christmas and usually in Aspen in the summer.
I did a thesis in experimental nuclear physics under the direction of Samuel K. Allison.
I was much involved in the development of the spark chamber as a practical research tool.
My mother, Dorothy Watson, had met my father in a Greek class at Northwestern University.
My primary and secondary education was provided by the Highland Park Public School System.
During this period, with a series of excellent students, we further studied hyperon decays.
One of the greatest joys in my life was giving a lecture in French at the College de France.
In addition to the research, I enjoyed learning French and assimilating the culture of another country.
