Prof. Müller’s First Lecture
The mechanical sciences are old and venerable. But age does not protect from stupidity.

The consequences of this liaison were inevitable — their name is geomechanics. I am particularly honoured in introducing as a sort of governess this young and still somewhat immature creature to this group of mature and famous contemporaries.
