  7. Kingman autobiography
    • Kingman is a commoner surname in the USA than in England, because most of the family emigrated to the American colonies in the 17th century, but obviously a few overslept and missed the boat.
    • I also found to my delight two probabilists visiting from the USA, Steven Orey and Don Iglehart, with whom I enjoyed fruitful collaborations.

    • But in the course of writing our speech, today 4-12-99, we read in a newspaper with natural excitement that the American composer, singer and pianist Stevie Wonder, 49, who lost his sight a few hours after birth, is going to try to recover it thanks to a revolutionary chip, developed by Wilmer's Ophthalmic Institute of Johns Hopkins University (USA).

  19. Bell on Besicovitch
