Exploration (*)


This monument to American Nobel Prize winners had just been unvailed. These kids came by and were very interested. What struck me was how tactile they were.

Hi Jeff. Yes, that is Alfred Nobel's face. The memorial has a side with his face and some words about the prize. The rest of the monument has the names of all of the American winners to date. The very first was Theodor Roosevelt and this is in Roosevelt Park. Very fitting. We were at the unveiling because my dad's name is on the monument. Edwin McMillan, Nobel in Chemistry 1951. Ann

Well, maybe they want some of the wisdom to be transferred to them ... Very symbolic
