The first minute of the talk was lost, so it starts mid-sentence. I was describing the first time I met Ansel Adams. I was in my mid-twenties. He was a Polaroid consultant and good friend of Dr. Land.  When I came to work that morning I was handed a prototype SX-70 camera and film. I was told to pick up Ansel Adams at his hotel; drive him somewhere to take pictures; and be sure to be back at 12 noon sharp for lunch with Land.  The YouTube opens as I recall the experience.
