A story from Robert Hettel
I first met Pief in late 1966 or early 1967 when my high school physics class took a field trip to SLAC. The bus took us down near End Station A, a mighty vision to us all back then, and we were greeted by this little hobbit-like gentleman with incredible energy and warmth. He was so pleased to tell us about SLAC and to show us the new spectrometer system in ESA -- another vision of fantastic proportions for us teenagers back then.
