I had to Google this gentleman. Very impressive. A scientist of high integrity, curiosity and rigor. Glad you brought him to our attention.

You bet. Was watching some show that was talking about him and saw the pipe in the pics.

In that era, pipes were so common place it's surprising they aren't more prevalent today.

I don't know what I don't know.

I was reading an article about J.D. Salinger this morning and discovered that he smoked pipes for over fifty years. Even after he quit, he liked holding a pipe in his hand. The article had no picture of him smoking but it did have this picture of his pipes on display at the NY Public Library. Salinger grew up in New York but moved to Cornish, NH at age 46 to avoid the consequences of fame after the success of Catcher in the Rye. Catcher still sells a million copies a year! Can't imagine anyone escaping from fame nowadays.

I disliked having to read books in high school, but Catcher in the Rye was one I enjoyed. And that's a cool way to store your pipes. I can imagine that sitting on a desk littered with paper stained by the bottom of coffee cups, an old typewriter, and a half a bottle of booze....
