For decades, the Roach siblings, John, Jan, Charlotte and Gerry encouraged their father to write up episodes from his varied life experiences. Franklin wrote Gerry in 1982 that he intended to finish the project of about 100 typewritten pages, and make copies for the family, but that any action beyond that would be up to the children. This book is the product of their efforts.
Franklin wrote these discourses from 1975 to 1992, and the events of his life appear chronologically by years and decades. Some subjects, such as music, which followed him all his life, appear throughout. Franklin’s musings wander through many subjects, and span a mix from the light-hearted to the serious. Franklin’s life covered most of the 20th century, and its ponderous events. When things got heavy, Franklin looked up. How does one measure this 20th-century man of science whose heart never stopped singing? Perhaps, with a nod of acknowledgement. Once, after Franklin completed a lecture on astronomy, a woman said to him that it was a fine lecture, but added, “I’m disappointed that you didn’t mention God.” Smacking his lips, and grinning, Franklin replied, “Oh, but I was talking about God all the time.”
This 255-page, soft-cover book has 49 black-and-white photographs. Franklin’s Musings and Memoirs might just make a perfect stocking stuffer for your loved ones, and you can add it to your existing order with little additional cost.
