My father worked on many of the manuals for the US nuclear reactors between 1966 and his death in 1985. When he died, we had to go through each of them, because he had a bad habit of using his pay cheques for bookmarks. Then we had to be careful to shred all of them before we put them in the Berkeley dump.

My great grandfather was quite involved with cataloguing the iconographic meaning behind churches with Georg Dehio, which has evolved into a major German project called the Dehio Project.

My great great grandfather wrote a couple of major published thesis on plant seeds and their geometric forms in relation to Plato's geometric solids (also incorporated some of Kepler's stuff). That one surprised me greatly, as I did not know this until after I wrote my Master's thesis using the same info. Decided geometry interests may be genetic. ;-]
