the Subatomic World, Dies

By George Johnson

Oct. 3, 2018

Leon Lederman, whose ingenious experiments with particle accelerators
deepened science’s understanding of the subatomic world, died
early Wednesday in Rexburg, Idaho. He was 96.

His wife, Ellen Carr Lederman, confirmed the death, at a care facility.
She and Dr. Lederman, who had long directed the Fermi National Accelerator
Laboratory outside Chicago, had retired to eastern Idaho.

"… novelist, poet and minister George MacDonald . . . ."

See as well Jess Lederman, Investment Banker.

"I have three children with my first wife, Florence Gordon.
Daughter Rena is an anthropologist,
son Jesse is an investment banker
and daughter Rachel a lawyer."
