Bill Mumper, technical supervisor in the Technical Division Test and Instrumentation Department, is retiring. His last working day at Fermilab is Dec. 20.
Mumper joined Fermilab in 1978. As technical supervisor, he helped test superconducting magnets in vertical and horizontal test stands for experiments at the Tevatron and the LHC. He also helped test prototype magnets for various experiments.
Mumper has “a long honey-do list” for life after Fermilab. One of his projects is to plant a large vegetable garden of tomatoes and many types of peppers for him and his significant other to enjoy.
