LOL, from the letters:
We have every Wednesday a seminar at which somebody talks about some item of research, and from time to time this is made a joint seminar with Rochester University. I am being taken in Feynman’s car, which will be great fun if we survive.
:biggrin:

"It is for the sake of opportunities like this that I want to spend five more years poor and free rather than as a well-paid civil servant..."

Great quote.
