James Bjorken, The November Revolution: A Theorist Reminisces, 1985 (spire:214067)
The big international conference of $[$1974$]$ in London was a turning point $[$…$]$ Ellis’ catalog well reflected the state of theoretical confusion and general disarray in trying to interpret the $e^+ e^-$ data. But in the midst of all of this was a talk by John Iliopoulos (I think I was there too). With passionate zealotry, he laid out with great accuracy what we call the standard model. Everything was there: proton decay, charm, the GIM mechanism of course, QCD, the $SU(2)\times U(1)$ electroweak theory, $SU(5)$ grand unification, Higgs, etc. It was all presented with absolute conviction and sounded at the time just a little mad, at least to me (I am a conservative).
