The laser damage meeting: early years
Author(s): C. Martin Stickley

Paper Abstract

This talk will cover my personal recollections about the early years of lasers and the laser damage situation in the 60s: the persons involved, the lasers used in damage experiments, the companies involved, funding agencies involved, personal interactions in those days, the nature of the papers in 1968, and the unique style of management and conduct of the first and later meetings by Art Guenther and Alex Glass, a co-invited speaker with me at this 50th anniversary meeting.
