Who is Albert Baez?

Albert Baez: Albert Vinicio Baez was a prominent Mexican-American physicist, and the father of singers Joan Baez and Mimi Fariña. He was born in Puebla, Mexico, and his family moved to the United States when he was two years old because his father was a Methodist minister.

He made important contributions to the early development of X-ray microscopes and later X-ray telescopes.
