The Admiral apparently hadn't changed much over the years.  A very good friend of ours, a Naval Academy graduate ("ring knocker") who is in his mid 70s now, interviewed with ADM Rickover sometime around 1959-61, my husband can't quite remember.  Walter flew from San Diego to DC for the interview, waited 3 days for in the outer office (I guess he went home at night, LOL) and then the Admiral told him to come back in 90 days after he lost weight.  ADM Rickover wrote a letter to Walter's wife telling her to put him on the diet.  Walter came back thinner and got the job.
