The idyllic situation in which I found myself in the late 1940s—teaching and research among a group of congenial colleagues—was disrupted in 1949 by a political event, the requirement of the faculty to sign an anti-Communist loyalty oath. This led to turmoil and bitterness, which made it difficult to work. It seemed a good time to leave Berkeley for a while, and to broaden my horizons through visiting appointments at other universities.
