Guest Book
Found this inscription in one of George's books....


“If the universe contained only two bodies, the path of each, produced by their mutual gravitational attraction, could be predicted with any desired degree of accuracy.
As soon as a third body is introduced the paths (orbits) become chaotic (unpredictable).
This seems exceedingly strange to me, especially since the orbits of any two (without the third being present) can be predicted with infinitely fine accuracy.
Either we are missing something in our theories or a solution to the problem does not exist! If the latter is true, the best we will ever be able to do is to describe the things in Nature ….”

George and I were best friends as civil engineering students. We enjoyed the other's company. We lost track after Cornell. His passing was noted in the alumni magazine and it triggered a flood of good memories. I've not met anyone during my working life who had as comfortable a personality with me. Rest in Peace, George.

I worked with George for 20+ years at Maxwell. He was the most talented engineer I ever worked with and a good friend. We will surely miss him.

"I worked for George Schofield as an admin. assistant at Maxwell. He was absolutely one of my favorite bosses ever. I had intended to come to his memorial with Merv Briscoe who also worked with Dr. Schofield. Somehow we had the date wrong. Will miss"
