Honorary degree from the University of Edinburgh 2016-07

Honorary degree from the University of Edinburgh

Scope and Contents

Richard Zare receiving an honorary degree from the University of Edinburgh on the occasion of their 50th anniversary of establishing a chemical physics graduate program.
From Zare:
"I was asked to prepare a very brief address to the graduates, one not to exceed two minutes. I found this challenging but did offer them just two words of advice: "Don't go!" I thought that this would provoke laughter from the audience but to my surprise it was greeted only by silence. Later on, I was told by others and by others who told others that these two words are all that were remembered from the long graduation ceremonies."
