The APS April Meeting featured a special session in recognition of the achievements of Beverly Berger (center), who recently retired after more than ten years as a program officer at NSF in the area of general relativity and gravitation. In addition to remarks from Berger herself, attendees at the session heard Kip Thorne of Caltech (right) speaking on geometrodynamics, and John Friedman of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (left) talking about relativistic astrophysics.
