Dick Taylor Story



I was a lowly postdoc during the four and a half years I spent at SLAC from 1974 to 1979 and so didn't get to speak to the experimental group leaders such as Professor Taylor very much.

But I did enjoy the parties that were held. In later years, when I was working at SLAC as its magnet engineer, one of them won a Nobel Prize.

I took these photos at Dick Taylor's Nobel Prize party on 17th October 1990.

I did enjoy friendships with our SLAC library staff, and Rita Taylor was amongst them, and I am glad to be able to share these photos with her.
