For more pomp and a little circumstance, see the neary folder " 11/5/2007 Helen receives the Order of Australia on board HMAS Sydney in San Francisco harbor".

At the end: I just added several photos from 1987. Helen (and Jameson) coloring in the first design for the poster, "Fundamental Particles and Interactions". Our dog Mitzie rests on her cushion. See <http://www.cpepphysics.org/>.

CPEP, the Contemporary Physics Education Project, was awarded the 2017 "Excellence in Physics Education Award" by the American Physical Society: "For leadership in providing educational materials on contemporary physics topics to students for over 25 years". Helen helped found CPEP and was its first president.
