Albert Michelson, billiards player and Nobel Prize winner

Norman Maclean, of A River Runs Through It fame, has a recollection of the physicist Albert Michelson here. Maclean was an undergraduate at the University of Chicago when Michelson was near the end of his career.

Low key and thoughtful, as you’d expect.

I didn’t know Michelson was the first American to win a Nobel in a science.
