Richard Brewer has made significant contributions to atomic physics, laser spectroscopy and quantum optics, research which has appeared in about 150 publications in books and physics journals. (A personal account is in Memoirs, R.G. Brewer, Bohr Library, American Institute of Physics, MD, 2004.) His approach to a problem always involves an interplay between theory and observation. Throughout this work, fundamental problems were addressed using novel and simple laser techniques. Most of the work was carried out at IBM with young visiting scientists, experimentalists and theorists, from all over the world who went on to occupy important academic positions. In addition, a few collaborations were with such luminaries as Edward Teller at UC, Berkeley, Charles Townes at MIT, Ali Javan at MIT, and Erwin Hahn at UC, Berkeley. He also contributed importantly to the advancement of physics by initiating with Aram Mooradian the highly successful International Conference on Laser Spectroscopy, a conference series that continues today after 34 years.
