Richard B. Neal Symposium SLAC


SLAC is pleased to announce a symposium on Electron Linear Accelerators to be held at the
laboratory on Friday, September 5th, 1997, in honor of Richard B. Neal's 80th birthday.
Richard Neal was associated with Stanford University and SLAC for over 35 years. He was
one of the main physicists in charge of the design and construction of the Mark III 1 GeV
Electron Linear Accelerator at the High Energy Physics Laboratory at Stanford, and then the
Director of the SLAC Technical Division, responsible for the construction and operation of
the SLAC three kilometer-long linear accelerator until 1985, when he retired.
