Our man in China

Original post made by David Boyce, Almanac staff writer, on Jul 30, 2008

In anticipation of the upcoming Olympics in Beijing, Sheldon Breiner, a resident, a geologist and an active member of the Portola Valley community, has posted online slide shows from several visits to China in the 1970s.

In 1974, Mr. Breiner went to give talks on earthquake prediction and resource exploration, he said. In 1977, he visited with his wife Mimi as guests of the government. In 1977, he led a geophysics delegation from the United States and Canada. And in 1981, he won a special permit to travel throughout the country with his son David.

Here is the link to the slide shows:
