# Memories of Steven Weinberg (1933–2021)

## Abstract

**:**

## 1. Introduction

## 2. Effective Field Theory

## 3. Electroweak Unification

## 4. Symmetry Related Topics

## 5. Harvard Particle Theory 1978–1980

## 6. His Move from Harvard to Austin

- He never needed to retire from UT-Austin;
- During his lifetime, no other faculty member in the College of Arts and Sciences at UT-Austin could ever earn more than 95% of his salary(UT-Austin’s president was allegedly close to tears on this one);
- Least importantly, unlimited credit at the UT-Austin faculty club.

## 7. UT-Austin 1982–1983
