       : Encounters with Wheeler. 
520    "In Fall 1939, Richard Feynman, a brash and brilliant 
       recent graduate of MIT, arrived in John Wheeler's 
       Princeton office to report for duty as his teaching 
       assistant. The prim and proper Wheeler timed their 
       interaction with a watch placed on the table. Feynman 
       caught on, and for the next meeting brought his own cheap 
       watch, set it on the table next to Wheeler's, and also 
       began timing the chat. The two had a hearty laugh and a 
       lifelong friendship was born. At first glance, they would 
       seem an unlikely pair. Feynman was rough on the exterior, 
       spoke in a working class Queens accent, and loved playing 
       bongo drums, picking up hitchhikers, and exploring out-of-
       the way places. Wheeler was a family man, spoke softly and
       politely, dressed in suits, and had the manners of a 
       minister. Yet intellectually, their roles were reversed. 
       Wheeler was a raging nonconformist, full of wild ideas 
       about space, time, and the universe. Feynman was very 
       cautious in his research, wanting to prove and confirm 
       everything himself. Yet when Feynman saw merit in one of 
       Wheeler's crazy ideas and found that it matched 
       experimental data, their joint efforts paid off 
       phenomenally"--|cProvided by publisher.
