  <dc:description>Invited talk presented at the April 2019 Meeting of the American Physical Society, Denver, in the session, Honoring Leon Lederman.</dc:description>
  <dc:description>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.</dc:description>
