As a student teacher/Stanford intern, I was assigned to teach a section of physics, one hour each school day, under the supervision of Dr. Merritt E Kimball (Stanford ’49, MA ’50, Ed.D ’65, just as we arrived).

Merritt became a good friend and a significant mentor.1 He and Capuchino were already involved in the testing and implementation of Harvard Project Physics. And so my teaching materials (shades of Uno Ingard) were mostly pre-publication drafts of that program.
