David Helfand invited us to Columbia, to screen STARMEN, & visit the department. Donald and Alison both gave talks - about general relativity and about filmmaking, and had lunch with the first and second year grad students. Alison met Jacqueline van Gorkom the first woman tenured at Columbia in the hard sciences ... in 1988. Jacqueline is a radio astronomer working on the structure and evolution of galaxies. The photograph of the VLA signed by her colleagues was a going-away present from the VLA where she worked for many years.
