More on Energy Secretary-elect Steven Chu

While we have definitively determined that Chu is not a member of the APS’ Topical Group on Quantum Information (even though at least one of his Nobel co-Laureates is), I have since discovered that he is a 1970 graduate of the University of Rochester, esteemed alma mater of my father (BA English, 1966).  What does this mean?  Nothing, really, since he didn’t overlap with my dad, though I guess it does mean he spent four years of his life in Western New York (though in the inferior of the two cities in the region).
