Caption: Richard Edward Taylor (born 1929), Canadian physicist. Taylor became interested in physics after the atomic bombs ended World War Two. He was educated at the University of Alberta, where he gained a Master's degree. After graduating, he moved to Stanford, California, USA, and worked at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Centre (SLAC) there. In the late 1960s he worked with Jerome Friedman and Henry Kendall investigating the structure of protons and neutrons. This led to the discovery of quarks, the constituents of several subatomic particles. The trio received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1990.
