LaFollette Lecture - BIll Placher (November 2, 1990)
Twenty-five years and four months later to the day, and I can still recall this lecture: the room, Dr. Williams' introduction, and Bill's lecture. I sat in the front row to the speakers' left. We hung on every word. I was part of the crowd mentioned at 4:23. It wasn't a week until I had spent some time in Bill's office, then Dr. Blix, and then Dr. Webb.
And yes, it's "PLAY-ker."
