Abstract

“You can observe a lot by watching”American baseball hero and muddled sayings   author Yogi Berra.Greatness observed is a privilege for the observer. I knew, admired, and appreciated Emmett Leith for many years and observed a lot about him. Here I propose to share some of what I have learned by watching Emmett. He had only one true peer—Yuri Denisyuk—who shared the adventure of inventing modern holography and was his good friend. Both were great and beloved men, but Emmett was funnier. I miss them both very much.
