Dick Taylor Story

I certainly remember, besides his deep voice, sharp statements and often visionary positions in our field,
that he was a very kind person, caring about people. He for instance always asked about how I adapted back at
LAL and in France after my years at SLAC. Just after being recruited to the CNRS, he actually wrote me a page
long letter, with some "advice" for the continuation of my career in France.

He is among the people who influenced me in my young years, whom I admired, like Karl Brown, Dave Ritson
or Gordon Bowden (even if I did not know him as well as Karl, Dave and Gordon), a kind of pillar serving as example.
