Bradford Howland has had a long association with MIT.s Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) which was housed in a World War II wooden building, known only as “Building 20”. It housed neurophysiologists, linguists, and the MIT train club, among others. Even while Brad worked at a daytime job Lincoln Laboratory, he had a lab in Building 20 where he spent many late nights observing and interacting with scientists, mechanics, students, secretaries, janitors, guards, and people who simply walked in off the streets. These are the stories of those interactions.
