Why does everybody persist in calling the great man Dr.?

He refers to himself as D. Richard Hipp.

D is an initial but Dr. D. Richard Hipp has a PhD from Duke - graduated in 1992 (his thesis can be found here - its worth a read: http://bit.ly/2ygiDWx ) hence the Dr.

The weird error may have been mine.
