Oral History Center features Professor Emeritus George Leitmann
Engineering Science, Risk, and Relationships at UC Berkeley and Beyond

The Oral History Center of The Bancroft Library released Professor Emeritus Leitmann's oral history, which was recorded over twenty-three hours. From February 12, 2018 until February 12, 2019, Paul Burnett spent eleven sessions with Dr. Leitmann at his home talking about everything from his childhood in Vienna to Adolf Hitler and Sigmund Freud— both of whom he saw up close—to reconnaissance during World War II, rocket science, UC Berkeley administration, the riots at Berkeley in 1969, mathematics, the evolution of science and engineering instruction, the importance of family, and the kindness of dogs, among many other subjects.
