After being turned down by Treiman, I had to look for a
different route to make my own advancement in the United States.
If I was turned down by the person who was in the best position
to my ideas, I was not the first one.
Nikola Tesla was an immigrant from Serbia with an idea of using AC, instead of DC, to transmit electric power. At that time, Thomas Edison was in the best position to appreciate Tesla's idea, but he was staunchly against Tesla's idea. Tesla went to George Westinghouse to put his idea into practice. When I was writing an article about Tesla and Westinghouse, I was talking about myself.
Indeed, I needed my Princeton background to function properly in the physics world. This is precisely the reason why I had to go to Eugene Wigner. My approach to Wigner was quite fruitful and professionally rewarding. Many people think I was Wigner's student. Here are some interesting links.
As for Sam Treiman, I had a happy re-union with him, as you can see in my photo with him and my son taken in 1987. Mrs. Joan Treiman and my wife are also in this photo. As you can see Sam Treiman was a very handsome man.
