You're retired, aren't you? What did you teach?

I taught in the School of Forestry from 1955 until 1963 and then from 1988 until 1998. My most outstanding accomplishment was as a disobedient subject in Stanley Milgram's obedience experiments.

At what point in the experiment did you refuse to obey?

I don't know. When I asked him, he said, "I'm sorry, the records are sealed." I'm waiting until 2075 and then I'll find out.
