They were immediately awed. They were taken by the scent of the place, the mixture of dust and pine, and by the Jemez Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo range looming twenty miles away. On days when Los Alamos was under a dark cloud, the mountains could be brightly sunlit. The physicist in Garwin noted that when "the cloud covered most of the path over the valley that would otherwise have dimmed the contrast of the view by contributing a background of scattered light.

Returning to Los Alamos for the summer ofGarwin had just spent the winter in Korea and Japan at the behest of the US Air Force because the air force had set up the Tactical Air Command and wanted to know what kinds of technologies and laboratories would be most useful in the war then embroiling the Korean peninsula. Garwin had been a graduate student of the great Enrico Fermi at the University of Chicago and was already becoming well known by the defense establishment, a relationship — sometimes smooth, sometimes corrugated — that would last the rest of his long life.

He found the work at Los Alamos interesting. Just as important, room and board at Los Alamos was free, and he did not have a full-time job. The first thing he did was to make use of his new security clearance granted because of his work at the Argonne National Laboratory so he could read all the secret papers in the library on nuclear weapons.

One day he was chatting with Edward Teller, whom he knew from Chicago. Garwin, like everyone else in physics, knew that Teller was fascinated almost to the point of obsession with the possibility of a hydrogen bomb, a weapon vastly more destructive than the fission bomb developed at Los Alamos. Everyone also knew that Teller did not actually know how to build one. The original family name was Gawronski, and his paternal grandfather came from Riga — or so Garwin thinks. His paternal grandfather immigrated to Chicago and opened a shoe store.

Garwin's father, Rubie who later changed his name to Robertwas born there inthe third of four brothers. When Robert was seven years old, his father was murdered by his partner, leaving Robert's mother alone with four boys. She moved to Cleveland because the city's large and thriving Jewish community had an orphanage, the Jewish Orphan Asylum, where she put two of the boys, including Robert, because she could not support four children alone.

The orphanage had originally been built for the children of Jewish Civil War veterans. It was not an entirely pleasant place. The two brothers spent all their school years there. Inthe entire family changed their names to Garwin. None of the other Garwin boys went to college. He never became an engineer either, Garwin said, probably because of anti-Semitism in the profession.

Instead, Robert became a science teacher at East Technical High School, specializing in teaching electricity by day and becoming a movie projectionist at night. Garwin's mother, Leona Schwartz, was a "greenhorn," arriving in from Hungary where she was born in Leona was the second of twelve children — nine of whom survived to adulthood.

She went to work in a department store instead of high school, and married Robert Garwin in She worked as a legal secretary. He was a happy, healthy child, and his aunt Margie, puzzled by his mental development, gave him arithmetic tests "three times six, plus seven, times two, minus fifteen, divide by Actually, after a while, when I had my children, I realized how advanced he had been at one year old. At that time we didn't know," his aunt remembered.

His father, Robert, spoke to him more as if Garwin were an intelligent adult thanexplaining things mechanically. The sets had pegs that held colored washers, which substituted for money, and fake ivory tiles that clicked when they were played. When Margie's family got a television set, Garwin and his brother, Edward, took it apart to see what was inside and then put it back together again. For his twelfth birthday, he asked for a calculus textbook, Margie said.

InRobert realized their house was "underwater," meaning they owed more than the house was worth. So, like many others, they walked away from their home and somehow got a mortgage for a new, two-family house in the largely Jewish suburb of University Heights. Robert told the builder to double the size of a two-car garage even though they only had one car. He built a workshop in the space the car didn't need.

Projectionists were highly skilled, unionized workers. But when sound movies threatened the industry many, including Robert, had to learn the new technology, which included adjusting and maintaining sound-on-film speakers and amplifiers. The local school board had a rule that its teachers could not hold two jobs — it was the Great Depression, and the feeling was that as many people as possible should have jobs — so he quit teaching and became a full-time projectionist and then opened a motion picture equipment and sound repair business in a twenty-foot extension to the Washington Boulevard garage he built when they bought the house.

His brother Joe ed the business, Gartec Theater Equipment, and eventually it grew big enough for them to hire employees. Robert gave classes to other projectionists in the city for many years, and ran the business until his death in The family, cousins, aunts, uncles, came and went.

The Cleveland house was crowded. Garwin's aunt Irene lived with her husband and daughters on the first floor until they were divorced; Garwin, his parents, and Garwin's brother Edward lived on the second, and his father had a workshop to himself in the attic. He and his father were an engineering team, throwing together projects.

Garwin was not the only member of the family to benefit from Robert's intellect and talent. Edward also went on to become a distinguished physicist, with a doctoral degree from the University of Chicago, studying under Valentine Telegdi, who would become one of Garwin's friends and competitors.

Edward spent most of his career at the Stanford Linear Accelerator in Palo Alto, California, helping to build the two-mile-long electron accelerator and the Stanford Positron Electron Accelerating Ring. Edward died in Remembering his father, Garwin said, "He was a very capable person, and I liked it because he did interesting things.

I did not resist. Both families shared the basement, with its coal pile, the furnace, and washtubs. Garwin and his father built a darkroom in the basement, next to the coalbin. He [Robert] had a lot of books around the house, engineering manuals and so on, which I read at an early age. I was a good student. My handwriting was terrible, but otherwise I was a good student.

I learned to type at the age of seven or eight, because otherwise the teachers wouldn't accept my work. From toI helped my father in his sound equipment business, with tasks ranging from splicing film and cleaning equipment to building amplifiers, and the like.

He was the kid who was chosen last for a baseball team. He did like to swim. He also played with chemistry sets. It was Pierre Louis Dulong who lost his fingers — and an eye. Garwin also acquired a knack for glassblowing — strictly utilitarian. He lined a wooden bench, which they used for glassblowing, with marble plates to keep it from catching fire. They bought professional glassblowing equipment — ribbon burners, controllable torches — and hooked up an old vacuum cleaner to pump air and natural gas into what became the furnace.

He wasn't making art; he was making chemistry equipment, tubes and condensers.

He also ed up for the Westinghouse Talent Search, a nationwide contest that rewarded young people for deing science experiments. Garwin's involved measuring the voltage required to decompose water by passing a current through it under pressure. He set up a heavy glass shield for protection, which came in handy when the experiment exploded with a deafening bang. It didn't matter; the teacher forgot to turn in the report on time. Garwin was ased to what was called a "major work program" at school, something like a gifted student's program in modern jargon.

Because he skipped two grades, he graduated at the age of sixteen from Cleveland Heights High School. He had decided on physics as a career. He applied to the University of Chicago and Allegheny College, but the Case School of Applied Science offered him a half scholarship, and family finances being what they were, Case won. He lived at home, taking the bus to school. He went to classes and immediately returned home, taking no part in the extracurricular activities or social life the school offered.

He did not have time nor interest, and, with the war looming, everyone was in a rush. He finished in three years, again acceleration as the result of wartime needs. He got perfect grades in every course but one, and that one exception involved a registration mix-up. Garwin had been a college sophomore on August 5,when the government announced that an atomic bomb had been dropped on Hiroshima. I guess in I was already in college, but people didn't talk about nuclear energy. People who knew anything about it realized it was classified and most of those people weren't at the universities anymore anyhow.

They'd gone into war work of one kind or another. By then I did know something about atomic physics and a little bit about nuclear physics, so I could understand to some extent what had happened. Of course, I moved quickly to obtain a copy of the Smyth Report, published August by the War Department, which revealed what details could be told of the atomic bomb program Manhattan Project in the United States.
