...Glenn T. Seaborg was born. He was one of the most eminent practical scientists of the 20th century, discoverer or co-discoverer of ten elements, and a pretty neat guy: unlike most celebrity scientists, who do their research and only associate with hand-picked grad students, he considered it a privilege to teach undergrads, and took a lab section of first-year students every year. Though I wasn't in his lab section, he visited mine a couple of times and was very pleasant.
