Description Untitled (Robert M. Halperin's 50th Birthday Celebration), June 1978. This color photograph shows an image from Robert M. Halperin's 50th birthday celebration at Burgess Park in Menlo Park, California. The photograph is shot looking upward as Halperin walks down the steps of a mobile aircraft staircase decorated with red and white streamers while holding a drink in his left hand. He wears a white button-down shirt, a red and black striped tie, and brown pants. Tree branches with green leaves fill the background of the image and the sun is visible near Halperin at upper right.

Raychemer Leon Hansen notes that the mobile aircraft staircase was a joke gift as Halperin flew to many places as part of his work, at that time, as Executive Vice President of the Raychem Corporation.
