Einstein did not
want to talk about the Copenhagen interpretation of the uncertainty
principle.

 I met Eugene Wigner while I was a graduate student at Princeton
University (1958  1961), but he was not a thesis advisor. My
advisor was Sam Treiman.
Yet, I was interested in
Wigner's 1939 paper on representations of the Poincaré group.
