Throughout the period spent at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Radiation Laboratory, Julian Schwinger did not socialise much beyond the immediate circle of his co-workers and old friends from Purdue or Columbia. In this period of his life, Schwinger's closest friend was Nathan Marcuvitz, an engineer in Edward Purcell's group at the Radiation Laboratory. Marcuvitz was concerned with Schwinger's solitary ways and now and then tried to help him meet a girl or arrange a date for him. Sometime in 1944 Marcuvitz met Clarice Carrol and decided she and Schwinger should meet. She would eventually become his wife. This chapter also looks at Schwinger's stint as a physics professor at Harvard University, his research on synchrotron radiation and nuclear physics, and his marriage to Clarice Carrol.
