First You Explore

"First, You Explore captures the essence of my uncle's young years—when he was inspired and encouraged by parents and other relatives. By setting examples for scientists like me and curious young adventurers he instills such inspiration."—Robert K. Taylor III, Design Research Engineering

"Following the footsteps of Dr. Towne's life in this wonderful book will provide the footprints of inspiration for many generations to come."—Mary Wood Beasley, former First Lady of South Carolina, and honorary co-chair (with Dr. Townes), Windows to New Worlds Campaign, South Carolina State Museum
