Walter Karplus

1927 – 2001 In Memoriam
As I look back on my long career, the things I remember are not the contracts I  brought in, not the books I have written, not the people I met in Washington. It’s the 35 Ph.D.s I helped produce, the students whose lives I changed. I suspect when you get to my stage and you look back, that’s what really comes to you.
