Lecture by well experienced people with many credential to back up their presentation. Was nice to dig into a new topic within the field, while getting more details on some aspects we discuss in class lecture. They were open to questions at the end which was great. Thank you for offering these presentations. Only wish they werent so late, but i understand there are too many people with different schedules throught the day.

Excellent presentation! The author is very engaging, and a wonderful storyteller! Like Baskin Robbins, she served up scoop after scoop of the lives of each of the people in her book, to the delight of all! Like examining a diamond, she concentrated on the facet of women's involvement with the Manhattan Project in (now) Oak Ridge, while alluding to many other facets along the way. Marvelous insights into unknown lives who unknowingly helped change the future of the world. Thanks to Physics for hosting, and to McClung for the venue.

The antiques were lovely and I especially loved the old ads and books. They’re great snaps shut of a different time. It just seemed kind of sparse and small.
