After Cliff's death in 2001, the National Academy of Sciences asked his son, Robert Shull, to write a memoir on the elder Shull. The memoir is a history, a love story, and an allegory on how to practice science. In his talk, Bob will not only outline the milestones in Cliff's development of neutron scattering as a measurement tool, but also how Cliff Shull approached problems, and how his problem selection was influenced by what was going on in the physics community at the time. You will note that Cliff was not the only actor in this history, but that he was central to it.
