Dick Taylor Story

In later years at SLAC I found it best to visit Dick in his office in mid- afternoon as he would serve tea in fine English China. On one occasion I surreptitiously lifted the cup and turned the saucer over to see the name of the China.

Dick saw me do this and surprised me, he was very pleased.

He said he had been serving tea in this fine China for a long time but this was the first time anyone had shown interest in it. I donít remember clearly, but I think I was pleading for more money, and probably had a positive outcome.
