“To my considerable surprise I was in my sophomore year elected a member of something called the Signet Society, which was not really one of the Harvard clubs, but it was sort of an intellectual discussion society, which had lunches and so forth. And then in my senior year I was president of it. And I was probably the only physicist who was ever president of the Signet.” —Thomas Kuhn, The Road Since Structure
