A story from
Sid Drell's smile is something I will remember about him as long as I live. For me, one of my strongest memories of Sid was the help he gave
me with a conference paper and later essay in the book, IMPLICATIONS OF THE REYKJAVIK SUMMIT ON ITS TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY, which he edited
with George Shultz. I learned that he was less enamored of missile defense as requirement for a nuclear-free world than I was. Despite his
reservations about my point of view, he willingly helped me with technical parts of my argument, saving me from committing amateurish
errors. He was more than civil; he was generous and charitable to me. It was a memorable experience.
