Introduction: Murray Goodman's first publication in the chemical literature (published 1953) was primarily physical in nature, not hinting at the breadth and diversity of the 600 or so publications that would eventually express his life's work. This initial offering focused on the incorporation of radiolabelled phosphate into algae under both light and dark conditions. Particularly noteworthy are the subject matter and the principal researcher, Melvin Calvin, Murray's thesis advisor at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Calvin was later awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1961 for the elucidation of the mechanisms involved in photosynthesis and worked well into his eighties. Murray often said that he would never retire while his years in research were less than those of Melvin.
