It is customary for most biographies of a scientist to open with an account of how his scientific interest was stimulated by creative teaching of science in school or by encouragement of his scientific interest by his family. I’m sorry to report that neither was true in my case. Neither my elementary school nor high school (a German Gymnasium) offered any significant courses in science during my attendance, and my parents were scholars in the history of art who described their two children as Klempners (plumbers) when their interests in scientific subjects became manifest.
