Credits for the photos from the top of the page to here:  The first two were taken by Shirley Schwarz.  The record of Prof. Marsilio and me is by her husband Patrick McIntyre.  Maddy’s professional shoot took place in the studio of JRP Bay Area.  The vast majority of the other family photos are by Lisa Yang (most of the exceptions being when she is in the picture, so that another family member took the shot).

 

 

 

The following photos were taken at the “In Vino Veritas” Symposium, sponsored by CEMERS at Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY, April 24-25, 2009 (read the sponsor’s and conference's full titles as well as the program here).

Actually, most of the symposium was concerned with what Prof. Barzman happily called the “theory” of wine, whereas the first six photos above pretty much involve its “practice”; but to be fair, here is an example of the former: she calls on a person with a question for the afore-mentioned Prof. Grieco after his keynote presentation on the Friday evening; photo: CEMERS
