Abstract of Commemorative lecture
A Moveable Feast
The author and Nobel Laureate, Ernest Hemingway, once wrote that to be in Paris in the 1920s was like a "moveable feast." In a different time and a different place, I experienced the same excitement and, indeed, a "moveable feast." I will share with you:
The experience of growing up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a family that valued something that it did not have - a formal education; the events that shaped my outlook on life and the guidance I received and choices I made along the way. A professional life that featured the creation of the liquid crystal display, and a new career each decade and finally, the last chapter (?) and my personal catechism of creativity.
