The summer of 1965 was one of dramatic firsts—Medicaid and Medicare were established, the Beatles played the first stadium concert in rock history, and U.S. astronaut Edward Higgins White made his maiden space walk. It was also the summer that Richard "Booth" Hartley began his Caltech career at the Jet Propulsion Lab. Seems fitting for a man described by his colleagues as a "legend."

For Bill Lease, stockroom supervisor in the Division of Biology, the road to Caltech was a long one. Born in Indonesia, he came to the United States at the age of 20. With $350 in his pocket, Lease traveled from New York to California, seeking out the palm trees of his youth. Five years after setting up a new life in Pasadena, he began working here. In June, Lease—along with three other members of the Caltech community—will be honored for 45 years of service at the Staff Service Awards.

To the Caltech community,
As many of you know, one of our own—Nobel Laureate Ahmed Zewail—has been in Cairo for the past two weeks. In a phone conversation I had with Ahmed this weekend, he said, "It is exhilarating to be part of this historic transition, to watch the emotions and joy of the Egyptian people, and to be able to give back in any way I can; it is a defining experience in one's lifetime."
