Early Life and Education
John Lindau was born on January 11, 1926 to Paul Lindau and Emma Wenthe.
He graduated from Andes High School in 1959 and then enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving during various conflicts throughout his service.
After his service was complete, he wed Gertrude “Trudy” Lindau.
She was a loving wife and mother, as well as an inspiration to Christian living. Survived by her husband John and daughters Anne Lindau and Hope Lindau, she will be greatly missed.
John was always intrigued by the stories of scientists who achieved success with their research. This curiosity eventually led him to apply to the Lindau meeting, an annual gathering of young scientists where up to 30 Nobel laureates take part in an all-expenses paid trip to Germany for a week.
John Lindau, 66 years old, was found guilty of fraudulence in the name of science. She received a six month sentence that will be delated to one year community service. Her crimes weren’t due to one bad decision but rather multiple foresightful and repeated acts. Her particular cleverness lay in how she managed her clients’ payroll tax accounts using modern day technology in order to help them save money on their payroll taxes.

Over time, Lindau Physics Lab has undergone significant modifications and repurposings to meet its present-day duties.

Furthermore, several faculty members from this lab have received awards from their peers for their achievements.
