Friends in Texas

Spencer Weart was recently invited to give luncheon presentations in Houston, Dallas, and Austin, telling Friends of the Center and others about our activities. The first stop was in Houston, where Neal Lane, now Senior Fellow at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University, introduced Spencer by remarking on the need to keep the public informed about science issues and to encourage physics education. Fred Bucy, the retired President of Texas Instruments, hosted the lunch in Dallas, where he commented on the need to set straight the record of physics in our time. Our last lunch was in Austin, where a group of physicists, historians, and archivists from the University of Texas discussed the problems of preserving historical materials.
