Prev : Next The Endless Frontier
Science and technology ascending
In the summer of 1945, the world watches as science and technology put a decisive end to World War II. In July, Vannevar Bush, director of the U.S. Office of Scientific Research and Development, releases The Endless Frontier, his annual report to the president. The document makes headlines in the New York Times, and sets the tone for U.S. science policy throughout the Cold War period. It urges broad support of basic academic research in the physical and life sciences.
