  • And Speaking of Scalps

    Posted by Jay Manifold on October 8th, 2004 (All posts by )

    Add another to the long, long list of U of C Nobelists … (hat tip: Bill Roule). Any doubts that everyone’s favorite major South Side university can credit itself with this one are dispelled by this telling passage:

    … although he wasn’t socially adept, “I fit right in,” [Wilczek] recalled. “It was fortunate to me that the U. of C. didn’t stress sociality,” he joked.

    The dweebs are inheriting the Earth.

      Wilczek was there when I was there, but I was a fourth and fifth year (I am not in line for any prizes) student. I do not recall having meet him, but I did not take any physics or math courses after my gen ed requirements.

      Another tale from a wasted life. sigh.
