And, so I guess we can come back to any other memories or people or stories or just memories of the Lab that you want to record.

RM

Let's see, what other thoughts do I have? Well I guess, I certainly, I think sometime before I retired I made a list of all the people who had worked for me and where they were and what had happened and stuff like that. And I think, even though some people worked here maybe only a short time, and, and then had obviously better job offers other places, I feel that, in talking to them that their work experience here had an impact on their career. And then some of the students who went through here, we had students that worked for us part-time, we had some students who did thesis work here, and I always thought that was one of the rewarding things was looking at how maybe the Lab and maybe myself had some influence on people's careers. And it's great to see some of them go on and be very successful.

LB

So did you enjoy working with the students?

RM

Yes, yes I did. I did very much so because they're, it seemed, energetic and they could, I mean you'd mutually come up with some ideas on what way a thing should go. And it seems that things would go a lot faster with students than with staff, because they were often motivated differently. They wanted to get that done and get their degree and get going.

LB

I think we're getting close to an hour. If you have any other thoughts, otherwise---

RM

Oh, I think that's interesting, now tell me what's going to happen with this information, what do you do?
