Time as a reporter was a true adventure - Carroll County Times

Thu, Dec 15, 2011
He was quite a quiet, humorous, hard working and humble genius. I remember being dazzled by the incisive reporting of Martha Raver, Michael Townsend, Troy Ferguson, Gene Bracken and Greg Davy as they investigated what needed to be known in the county. Like them, I hammered my stories out as fast as I could on the manual typewriters provided to us. I served as a general reporter and then education reporter, and also the Times South Carroll office manager. The irony of writing about the school system was not lost on me. My college academics had started in the English education department before ending in mass communications emphasizing journalism. Since my father was one of the directors of the Maryland Board of Education at the time, some people on the Carroll County school board knew who I was before I met them. That didn't stop me from writing impartially, following leads to complete the story, and even reading from an upside-down angle what was on the desks of those I interviewed to see if that could get me anywhere - though that practice was never a Times directive. When my Dad told me a friend in Florida had read short articles I'd written - on a temporarily elusive phantom burglar in the ceiling of Westminster High School - that had gone to the Associated Press wires, I knew I'd arrived. But then, writing in 1977 about ambitious county resident, Elizabeth Belzer, as part of the first class of women to attend the U.S. Naval Academy, gained a personal response. Belzer, coming to attention for earning a hard-to-win spot at this worldwide reputable institution of higher learning, was simply seeking the best place to get instruction in ocean engineering. Belzer and I had lived a couple houses apart in our elementary school years before her family's move to Westminster; so, what a small world after all, to be able to catch up with her. It was an adventure, sometimes fun, sometimes serious,...

Herbert A. Hauptman, Nobel-Winning Mathematician, Dies at 94

Tue, Oct 25, 2011
Dr. Hauptman and Dr. Karle’s discoveries, it became possible to determine the structure of a 50-atom molecule in two days. Herbert Aaron Hauptman was born on Feb. 14, 1917, in the Bronx and attended Townsend Harris Hall, an elite school that closed in 1942 and was revived in 1984 as Townsend Harris High School on the campus of Queens College in Flushing. The school also produced the Nobel laureates Dr. Jonas E. Salk and Kenneth J. Arrow, an economist. Dr. Hauptman earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from City College in 1937 and a master’s degree from Columbia in 1939. After serving in the Navy during in World War II as a weather forecaster in the South Pacific, he joined Dr. Karle as a physicist-mathematician at the Naval Research Lab in 1947. He also enrolled in the University of Maryland, earning a doctorate in mathematics in 1955 for a dissertation based on his work at the lab. In 1970, unwilling to shift the focus of his naval research to laser-guided missiles, he joined the Medical Foundation of Buffalo (since 1994 the Hauptman-Woodward institute), a small private foundation specializing in endocrine research. He became its research director two years later and its president in 1988. He was also a professor of biophysics at the State University at Buffalo. He continued to work on problems in crystallography, shifting his attention in the mid-1980s to the analysis of larger molecular structures. Dr. Hauptman, who lived in Amherst, N.Y., is survived by his wife, the former Edith Citrynell; two daughters, Barbara Hauptman of Buffalo and Carol Fullerton of Bethesda, Md.; and a brother, Robert, of Silver Spring, Md.
