My crystallographic history began in September, 1945, the day after I was discharged from the Navy in New Orleans (chosen because it was the home of my fiancée, Helen Laterriere). I walked into the Registrar's office of Tulane University with my G.I. Bill in hand and asked if I could get into graduate school. They accepted me, with the warning that most classes were already filled. One that they found for me was held in the neighboring Sophie Newcomb College, the female counterpart of Tulane. The course was called something like "X-ray crystallography", which I had never heard of, and was taught by R. C. L. Mooney, who warrants a digression.
