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 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.”

From Physics World, Oct. 4, 2018: “[Lederman’s] leadership helped to shape the field of particle physics, designing, building and operating the Tevatron and positioning the laboratory to become a world leader in accelerator and neutrino science,” says current Fermilab director Nigel Lockyer.
