    Sheila and I wish all of you a fine and safe Holiday Season.

    I have completed the genealogy of my father, B. Arnold Block, and in the process identified the home and family from which he emigrated. We found the present Block family in Ostfriesland Germany and visited them this last April. The story of our visit is told in a full page report in the Kurier newspaper there. In our annual Christmas letter we couldn't include it, so we put the it up on the internet for our friends to see.

    I take this opportunity to put the URL here for your use in case you would like to visit our page. Of course, we had to include three pics of Robert's grandchildren as well as one of ourselves to boot.

As this is written in 2005, our children, Andrew, Hannah, and Rachel, are 15, 13, and 10 years old. Andrew is a writer, Hannah is an artist, and Rachel is our athlete. And, being children of Christine, they all play piano, plus Andrew is a trumpeter and guitarist; Hannah is a violinist; and both girls are flutists. Christine still plays organ, piano, flute, and a little harp. Bruce plays nothing but the radio. Christine is organist, bell choir director, choir accompanist, and music coordinator at church. She also does lots of substitute teaching at the Freeburg school. In addition to his work as pastor, Bruce is active in Higher Things, a Lutheran youth organization.

Every few years we try to get together and this year I have the privilege of hosting "our" group except Marty (Thompson) Sauer, who will be on a trip to Germany so is unable to join us. Aren't we blessed to have been a part of a community like St. John's? My church home, Memorial Lutheran Church and Student Center here in Ames is a wonderful continuation of that Christian fellowship that we experienced at St. John's.

    In August 2005, half of Slidell was blown or washed away. Many friends left homeless. Our house was dry but the roof was full of holes with 5 large pines piled on. We did better than so many, and we rode out the storm, they called her Katrina, at home. Then in October we flew to Berlin and spent Reformation Day 2005 in Lutherstadt-Wittenberg, a dream come true. We visited the graves of Luther, Melancthon, Kaethe Luther in Torgau, and J.S. Bach in Leipzig all on our way to see the newly restored Frauenkirche in Dresden. After several weeks resting and touring in the Peloponisos, we flew home to the war zone. Everyday, things get better. Many thanks to the good Lutherans of the Eastern Iowa District for coming to help put us back together again.

    Meyer, Edgar (M '55) and Catherine
    During my year at the sem, I realized the world didn't need another mediocre minister.

    I took up the study of chemistry and received the PhD degree from the University of Texas in 1963, whereupon I enjoyed two glorious years as a post-doctotoral fellow at the ETH (Eidgen”ssische Technische Hochschule) in Zrich, Switzerland. Major accomplishments were: 1) meeting my wife, Catherine, 2) being part of the team synthesizing vitamin B12, and 3) learning to ski.

    Catherine and I moved to Cambridge MA shortly after our wedding (1965), where I was a post-doc at MIT and had the chance to work in the cradle of computer graphics. In 1967 we moved to College Station TX where I took a position at Texas A&M University in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. In addition to teaching and research, I had the opportunity to be the first to use color computer graphics (Brookhaven National Laboratory, 1968) for the display of molecular structures. In short order, I founded the Protein Data Bank (1971), the definitive depository of structural data of biomolecules and initiated computer networking in the life sciences (1971). I was a visiting collaborator at Brookhaven and the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry, Munich.

    Catherine and I have three children and three grandchildren. Erik was born in 1966. He and his siblings all attended public schools in College Station. After a year at Texas Lutheran (Seguine), Erik transferred to the University of Texas, Austin, where he received his B.S. degree in chemistry. He subsequently received the Ph.D. degree in chemistry from MIT, Cambridge. He is married (Sarah) and is living in Princeton, NJ. Where he works at a biotech company. Claudia was born in 1967. She and her siblings attended the Univeristy of Texas, Austin, receiving two B.S. degrees, one in Plan II (liberal arts, with honors) and one in architecture (with honors). Before graduation he spent a year with the architect, Santiago Calatrava, in Zurich and Paris. She then worked firms in Luzerne (CH), Albuquerque, and Houston, before receiving a M.S. degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia). She has AIA and AILA certification and works for a landscape architecture firm in Santa Fe. She is the mother of a glorious daughter, Sofia. Our youngest son, Felix, also graduated from UT in Plan II (with honors) and spent a year as a Fulbright scholar in Belgium. He and his family (two grandsons) live in Zurich (CH), where he is a software engineer for an international industrial firm. Felix and Claudia studied the cello and violin; Felix still plays with a church orchestra in Zurich.

    I taught and supervised graduate students, post-docs, and occasional visiting professors for 35 years, publishing just short of 100 research papers before retiring. In my last years at A&M, I took up the hobby of carving sculptures of molecules. The connection back to computer graphics is not that remote, as many times I had been struck by the inherent beauty of molecular structures that the world might never see. If God's beauty is revealed in nature, shouldn't she also be found at the molecular level? The answer is thrilling! Catherine and I retired and moved to Taos NM, where I set up a modelling and sculpting shop - you can find examples of my work on my web site: http://molecular-sculpture.com/ . We are active members of Sangre de Cristo Lutheran Church, Taos.

    Recent accomplishments include being commissioned by the Boston Museum of Science to make a scaled model of the site of binding and action of aspirin in the enzyme cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1) and, this spring, delivering bronze castings of models of the polio virus capsid and the capsid+membrane complex to the current exhibition `Whatever Happened to Polio" at the National Museum of American History, the Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC, and to the Harvard Medical School. http://americanhistory.si.edu/polio/virusvaccine/how.htm

    I have been invited to deliver the Lemelson Center lectures on "Inventive Lives" at the Smithsonian in July. I'll be sure to mention the formative role of St. John's in helping shape an humanistic view of science and art.
