Shockley, Brattain, and Bardeen Retirement

'19 Years Later: The three men who received a Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery of the transisitor effect in 1948 meet again at retirement party for one of them. The transistor inventors are (from left) Dr. William Shockley, now an engineering professor at Stanford and a consultant to Bell Telephone Laboratories; Dr. Walter H. Brattain, who retired from Bell Labs after 37 years; and Dr. John Bardeen, formerly of Bell Labs and now a professor of physics at the University of Illinois. Dr. Brattain is now a visiting professor of physics at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.'
