Today is the birthday of Berkeley Lab founder Ernest O. Lawrence, who was born on Aug. 8, 1901. Starting in a small lab on the UC Berkeley campus, Lawrence guided his Laboratory until his death in 1958. By then, the Lab had grown in size and moved up the hill to its present location. Winner of the 1939 Nobel prize in physics for the invention of the cyclotron, Lawrence is generally acknowledged as the Father of Big Science. His idea that complex scientific problems are best solved by multidisciplinary teams remains the foundation of the Lab's approach to research.
