My father, PhD from MIT (Chemistry, 1947), Assistant General Manager for
Reactors in the old AEC and thus Rickover's "boss," refused to be
called either Dr.--that was for MDs, he said--or Sir, totally confounding
his military aides; I called him Dad. I, however, as my home page attests, am
Dr. Tom, or just tk, thus combining both.
