Dr. Klein was also a fellow of the American Physical Society.
At Penn, Dr. Klein was known as a dedicated teacher and was respected by his colleagues for his mind, his sound judgement, and his dry wit. A friend recalled that Dr. Klein once said that there were three kinds of recommendations that could go to another university about an applicant: good, bad, and good enough for you.
This is a man whose life was physics. Not to the exclusion of other things. He was well-read, liked good companionship. But I am sure a day didnt go by that he did not think about unsolved problems and things he was working on, said Dr. David Balamuth, Penns dean of science and an experimental physicist.
After retirement, Dr. Klein remained a mentor for young physicists and continued to investigate key theoretical problems while also fitting in time for numerous outings with his wife to the opera and theater.
