graduation from Pomona with a math degree, I worked as a computer
programmer at Burroughs Corporation in Pasadena. After our children
were in school I resumed my programming career at Los Alamos National
Laboratory. Computer work has certainly evolved. There
was no computer science degree when I was at Pomona. I began programming
in Algol and Fortran; now I implement database applications and
web pages. I am thinking about retiring next year.
Bob, a physicist from Cal Tech, and I were married in December
1962. We lived in Pasadena, Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona, and
Philadelphia, before settling in Los Alamos, New Mexico, in 1969.
We have a house on a canyon with view to Santa Fe 35 miles away.
Luckily our house is not in the area that burned in the wild fires
of 2000. During the fire we evacuated to the home of classmate
Challis Letton Thiessen in Santa Fe.
Both of our children are
grown and married. Our son Daniel, an electrical engineer, lives
in San Diego. Both he and his wife, Kyong, are graduates of UC
Berkeley. Our daughter Karen is a biochemist. She graduated from
UC Davis and the University of Michgan. Her husband is a physicist.
