Part 157:

Dr. Lewis was more of a private  person. He was a remnant of a famous group of U.K. scientists like G. Hanna, C. Westcott and Sir John Cockcroft, who were associated with the British portion of the early scientific effort at Chalk River. As a matter of fact, as I now think back on my days at AECL, there seemed to be an inordinate number of Brits who kept joining our staff. I suppose the reason is that when the predominantly British professionals in place felt the need for new members the tendency was to go back to their professors across the pond. Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.
