Re: Re: [bod] SK -- Phil Morrison, ex-W8FIS

   I don't remember Philip or Phylis, but my mother knew them during his  
UC Berkeley days. According to her, he was an absolutely wonderful man.
She related a story about Philip, who claimed he was the only physicist he 
knew who could build a radio, building a page-turning apparatus for Louis 
Slotin, after Slotin's fatal accident at Los Alamos, so that Louis could 
read during that time in the hospital before his death. Philip was a true 
man of compassion.
