A story from David Perlman

As a reporter for the SF Chronicle and as early as 1965 I watched Pief as he adroitly defeated the combined forces of House Atomic Energy Committee Chairman Chet Hollifield, Congressman-to-be Pete McCloskey,plus a slew of Nevada politicians and Woodside residents to secure SLAC's location precisely where it is, and then to complete it on time and on budget for -- as far as I know -- the first time in the history of federal construction projects. Ever since then he was for me a never-failing, patient and friendly guide to high-energy physics and to all the complex issues of nuclear arms control. Bless him!
