Don Swanson’s career started on a path familiar to many who read this blog. A BA in Physics from CalTech in 1945. A Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from UC Berkeley in 1952. A decade working in scientific labs. Then his career took a turn when, after a decade of working in traditional scientific labs, Don took a professorship in the Graduate School of Library Science at the University of Chicago. For those keeping track, Don is the first Professor of Library Science mentioned on FreakTakes. But, as weird as it is to say, thanks to some of his trailblazing work and recent progress in the world of computing, it’s very possible he won’t be the last.
