Here’s another GDHS alumnus for the Hall of Fame. Anyone remember Nigel Lockyer?
“Lockyer received his PhD in particle physics at Ohio State University, did a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University and then became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, where he began teaching in 1984. His career since then has been a busy one, including stints as head of a large particle physics experiment at Fermilab, near Chicago, called CDF (which co-discovered the top quark); Chair of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Grant Selection Committee; Chair of the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s review committee; and member on a host of professional committees in the US.”

I really enjoyed the reunion. I did very well selling my brother Ed’s novel. Thank you for the opportunity to share his book with the community. It was fun for me. I got to see a lot of folks that I didn’t know until they introduced themselves. Many signed a book for me for the memory.
The entertainment was beautiful, lots of fun. Meal was marvelous. I just loved the music. We stayed to the end of the dance and I sold more novels there. Was that a party or was that a party?!
If any one wants Ed’s novel and pen just ask them to comment here and send me their name. I’d be more than glad to send it out. They are sellng for $10.00 now. Yours truly, HELEN ROSE EVANS
