Is John Robert Schrieffer, winner of the Nobel prize for his work on superconductors, still in jail? Google won't tell me. How do I find out? I want to contact him. e mail address?

Facebook?

After doing porridge I imagine he’d want some privacy rather than exposing himself to all and sundry via t’internet, (so to speak).

I'm not on Facebook- can't stand being so public - so i can't find him on it even if he is.Just thought someone out there might work at his lab or know him. I just want to ask him something - nothing devious or predatory or unwelcome.  Quite flattering really. Nothing to do with his sentence.
I'm not a journalist.

There is a Facebook page for "John-Robert-Schrieffer"... https://www.facebook.com/pages/John-Robert-Schrieffer/108156429204418?sk=info but it's just the wikipedia entry.

Alfred Nobel is on Facebook too ... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alfred-Nobel/112853362059182

Is he now! Thanks for pointing that out. He borrowed a book from me some time ago and I'm beginning to wonder it I'll ever get it back. Of course, back then, we just called him Fred.

Al is a real b Gore; Queenie is more high class. She send Bassett's and Frys chocolates to we of the court with plebeian roots.

What? YOU DIDN'T  GET ANY?   Sorry mate, didn't mean to flaunt it.

If you poke her an old Greek will give you both barrels of a twelve bore.

Facebook? Please! Get real.

If you want to contact any University based scientist, including Schrieffer, your best bet is to look them up on their University department website. That will have their professional email address and other contact information. Having said that, they are often quite busy and may not have any interest in hearing from you. I know I don't have time (nor the inclination) to respond to every strange unsolicited email that makes it into my in box.
