As a young child my heroes were physicists Enrico Fermi and Arthur Holly Compton both Nobel winners in physics. Later my father mentioned that he had been too shy to meet Arthur Holly Compton when he was in East Palestine.  I searched on Arthur Holly Compton / East Palestine and found out that his wife grew up near New Waterford and went to East Palestine high school for a bit from an interview she did in 1968.  Her maiden name was Betty McCloskey.  So now I know why Compton was in East Palestine.
