In this interview, Alice Armstrong discusses: her family and childhood; her time at Wellesley College; her work at the Bureau of Standards radiation lab, inlcuding the radiation standard and her first radiation accident; her time at Radcliffe College; x-ray induced illness; and her interactions with Marie Curie, P. W. Bridgman, O. D. Kellogg, William Duane, Emory Leon Chaffee, Theodore Lyman, and Robert Havighurst.
Graduate studies in Berlin in the early 1930s with Beutler; Ph.D. in molecular spectroscopy, 1934. Contacts in Denmark lead to stay at Niels Bohr Institutet as James Franck's assistant working on photo-synthesis, 1934-1935. Levi changes fields after Franck leaves and Otto Frisch and Georg von Hevesy arrive: she builds Geiger counters with Frisch, then works with Hevesy on induced radiation experiments. Lengthy discussion of how Hevesy's active work style and inspiring attitude engaged people at many different institutions, including herself.
