Dear Michael G.
The Wikipedia entry that Michael Balter provided reads like your father lived a full, rich and sometimes daring scientific life. Cannot beat that.
I hope his personal life and your experiences with him were equally rich, right up to 100.
Looking forward to hearing from you again when you are ready.
On Wednesday evening, my father, Maurice Goldhaber, well-known physicist and director emeritus of Brookhaven National Lab died, and I was at his bedside. He was 100.
I'm not in the mood to deal with the quibbles on this list, but will say something in about a week. In the meantime, please try to stay on topic .
