Shortly after my arrival a proposal for an intense neutron generator (ING) was turned down by our chief stockholder, the Government of Canada. The proposal was Dr. Lewis’s baby. At that time there was a considerable interest in the project in our branch (Neutron and Solid State Physics) headed by G.A. Burrell. Dr. Burrell had worked night and day on the project and when it was shelved he was rewarded for his loyalty by being promoted to Director of Physics Research by Dr. Lewis. In this position Gil Burrell had reached his level of incompetence. His secretary told me that whenever Gil saw Doug Milton, the flamboyant head of nuclear physics branch coming with a proposal, he became visibly nervous.
