317/365: Owen Chamberlain

I had this Nobel Laureate for Physics 10 when I went to UC Berkeley. Hated the class. I did terrible. I never wanted to hear about physics ever, ever again. Then I was hired as a secretary for the Physics Department at UC Berkeley and at one point ended up working for ... Owen Chamberlain! (He was a very nice man, when he wasn’t my teacher!)

Hey! I had Owen Chamberlain as a professor my freshman year for physics 7.

I couldn't believe that I had the fortune of being taught by a Nobel Laureate. How cool!
