Herbert L. Anderson, professor of Physics at the University of Chicago, stands near an elm tree a few feet from Eckhart Hall on campus. Top-secret discussions were held in the building during World War II, and he and other atomic scientists, such as Enrico Fermi, often gathered beneath the tree. A victim of Dutch elm disease, the historic tree will be cut down, and a commemorative bench will be made from its wood.
