Photos taken at the Bevatron Farewell Party

Click on the following link to view photos taken at the Bevatron Farewell Party. A Fond Farewell to the Bevatron Nearly 150 former employees of the Lab's famed Bevatron gathered on Nov. 6 to bid a final adieu to the facility, before ongoing demolition deems it unrecognizable. The Bevatron holds a significant spot in scientific history as the place of discovery that earned four Nobel Prizes. Speakers included Chief Operating Officer and Bevatron veteran Jim Krupnick, Interim Lab Director Paul Alivisatos, former Lab Director Andy Sessler, and demolition director Joe Harkins. Guest of honor was Ed Lofgren, who helped design the Bevatron, first turned the machine on in 1954, and turned it off in 1993 when it was decommissioned. Go here for a full story on the event, a video of the speaking program, and a photo slide show of the activities.
