Graduate Study and War Work at Caltech

After graduation from Princeton University in 1938, I submitted several applications for graduate school. I had a very interesting visit at Columbia University, including a stimulating discussion with I. I. Rabi. I received a multipaged single-spaced personal letter from R. A. Millikan, the president of Caltech (formally the chairman of the Executive Council of the institute), extolling in great detail Caltech programs and opportunities, and offering me a teaching assistantship.
