From University of Chicago News, Oct. 3, 2018: University of Chicago professors Rocky Kolb and Michael Turner pay tribute to Fermilab’s second director.
From ars technica, Oct. 3, 2018: He was a leading light of particle physics, directing one of the most prestigious physics laboratories in the world. He won the Nobel Prize and irked his physics colleagues by coining the term “the god particle” to describe the Higgs boson. That long, rich life ended the early morning of Oct. 3 when physicist Leon Lederman died of complications from dementia at the age of 96.
From Daily Herald, Oct. 4, 2018: Nobel Prize winner. Political advocate for science education who proposed what would become Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The guy who gave an enduring nickname to the Higgs boson. Leon Lederman was that, and more.
From Live Science, Oct. 4, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln offers a personal glimpse of the man who was the lab’s director when Lincoln first arrived at Fermilab. “When his Nobel Prize was announced in 1988, my first thought was, ‘What for?’ That wasn’t because I couldn’t think of an accomplishment of his worth the prize, but rather, I couldn’t decide which one.”
