  • The year 1950 saw tremendous advances in the laboratory study of mesons. It was the first year in which the accelerator physicists outdistanced the cosmic ray physicists in so far as their contributions to our understanding of the properties of mesons, the character of their production, and the nature of their interactions with nucleons are concerned. ... The cyclotron and synchrotron at Berkeley still led the procession, but Rochester and Columbia with their cyclotrons, Cornell and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with their synchrotrons, and Illinois with its betatron were rapidly catching up.
