In 1967, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory began to grow on the Illinois prairie, forty miles west of Chicago. Through the intelligence, ingenuity and commitment of many people, it grew into one of the world’s great research institutions—a truly international resource for physicists from around the world. In this hour-long presentation, Dr. Chris Quigg, who’s worked at Fermilab since 1974, traces the lab’s evolution from start-up to world-leading research center, highlighting landmark discoveries while recalling iconic moments and extraordinary characters. The presentation was given in Fermilab’s Ramsey Auditorium on Jan. 27, 2017, as part of Fermilab’s 50-year anniversary activities.
