Arnold Beckman supported Richard Nixon in his unsuccessful 1962 campaign for governor of California, including speaking at a campaign rally. In this image "Professor Beckman" gives a lecture on "Brownian motion" that critiqued Nixon's opponent in the race, Edmund (Pat) Brown (1905-1996). Beckman's scientific joke largely went over the heads of the audience at this event.
