Meeting 2017 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium The John Cahn Memorial Symposium
Presentation Title John Cahn's Boss, Really?
Author(s) Lyle H. Schwartz
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Lyle H. Schwartz
Abstract Scope From my earliest days, when I met John who was visiting John Hilliard at Northwestern where I was a grad student, until now, his influences on my life and career were profound. I marveled at his deep understanding of the subjects I was struggling with, used his results in work that underlay a major segment of my and my student’s own work, and sought his advice as my career advanced. How could I ever imagine that one day he would be influential in the move that brought me to the National Bureau of Standards and made me “John Cahn’s Boss”. In this talk I’ll trace the path of our interaction during those forty years and hope to add just a bit of personal information about this giant of our field.
