    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Invited talk presented at the April 2019 Meeting of the American Physical Society, Denver, in the session, &lt;em&gt;&lt;a href=""&gt;Honoring Leon Lederman&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
    <description descriptionType="Other">Leon Lederman was an early and vigorous advocate for the "Truly National Laboratory," realized as the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. He led a series of influential experiments at the new laboratory that culminated in the discovery of the Upsilon particles, bound states of a new fifth quark, b, and its antiparticle. Lederman served as Fermilab's director from 1978 to 1989, a decisive period for the construction of the Tevatron superconducting synchrotron and its exploitation as a proton–antiproton collider. This talk will focus on Leon's time as Director and his contributions to Fermilab's science and spirit.</description>
