Hi Chris,

Thanks, very much, for looking and commenting. I have one of Phil's aerial photos of the Center's facilities on the wall by my desk, with the mat signed by many of the people with whom I worked for 39 years. He photographed many of my test installations, as well as dignitaries whom I escorted on tours of the Center from time to time. He is best known for his up close and personal images of the facilities during construction. One of his images of the internally insulated return ducting of the 16-ft Supersonic Tunnel has been published many, many times, and is still a classic.

I kept telling him he needed to use Leicas, but he was happy with the Nikons which his office provided.

Last night, at the annual AEDC Fellows Banquet, Phil was inducted as a Lifetime 
Achievement Fellow.  While he was surrounded by well wishers, I was able to 
grab one snapshot.  When I spoke with him for a few moments, he was complaining 
about the difficulty in obtaining film for his trusty cameras.
