Sidney Drell was an integral part of SLAC and Stanford through decades of his career, during which he was known for his significant contributions to science, national security and nuclear arms control. A man of conscience and integrity, Drell was also known for his humility and wisdom, making lasting impressions on the people whose lives he touched. As a way of celebrating and remembering him, we share a collection of "Sid Stories," sometimes funny, serious, casual, profound... or somewhere in between.
