Part 1 – Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel

I have a better half and after much cajoling by me, he wrote his memoirs a couple of years ago. As a summer time project I’ll post a paragraph a day. It was published in 2008 and is available on Amazon. From the back cover:

Part 1 On a small island off the coast of Cape Breton, a young man of French Acadian origins, a high school dropout, set out to find his place in the world. After graduating with a Ph.D from the University of Toronto, he ended up at Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories doing research in pure physics.

  1. Hi Leslie. Your better half sounds like a very interesting person. Looking forward to hearing his story. The title on the cover intrigued me. “Hayseed.” ❤
