USPAS Prize Talk: Some Reminisces on My Career in Accelerators

As a youngster, I was drawn into accelerators at University of California. After some comments about how that happened, I'll relay on several important lessons that I learned there that have guided me and helped me along throughout my career. I'll tell the stories about the creation of the Beam Breakup code TDBBU; measurements of bunch length and path length at CEBAF; work on energy recovery linacs, both as conventional and FEL radiation sources; and more recent work on Compton sources and two-energy rings.
