Does "to court him away from his other commitments after the war to work at the University" mean "(Oppenheimer tried, after the war) to 'lure' him to work at the University, at the time, Feynman had other commitments (and the Oppenheimer's courtship failed)"?
On occasion, Feynman would find an isolated section of the mesawhere he could drum in the style of American natives; "and maybe I would dance and chant, a little". This did not go unnoticed, and rumors spread about a mysterious Indian drummer called "Injun Joe". He also became a friend of the laboratory head, J. Robert Oppenheimer, who unsuccessfully tried to court him away from his other commitments after the war to work at the University of California, Berkeley.
