Description

Sgt. Porcas' Lonely Post-Doc Band. The 1976 Charlottesville post-docs gather in a send-up of the classic, very solemn Solvay Conference photos of Einstein, Rutherford, M. Curie, etc. Left to right: Phil Hardee, Steve Spangler, Russell Hulse (standing), Lee J Rickard, John Armstrong (standing), Jesse Hill, Richard Porcas. John Armstrong believes Tom Jones took the photo. Richard Porcas says, "Note the blackboard filled with equations for the occasion. We could not get either Einstein or Rutherford to join us."
