Sample text

Within the armed services, and particularly within those units most closely involved with new technologies, it soon became axiomatic that some liaison with civilian scientific expertise would have to become a permanent part of postwar military operations. The frequently iterated rationale was that the current war constituted a 'close call'; that confrontations in the future would not allow the lead time that the United States had utilized in 1940 and 1941 to mobilize its scientific resources. It was also apparent that future military preparedness would depend upon the results of research at the advanced frontiers of science.

It was passed after strenuous debate, shorn only of its provision to include the social sciences. When it was sent to the House, however, it had to be reconciled with the Bush-inspired bill. By mid-July it was already late in an extremely busy session. 15 There would be other chances for the national science foundation, but they would not be the same as the opportunity that was lost on this occasion. The summer of 1946 was the critical juncture in the formation of the postwar federal research economy.

16 Idealism was exemplified in a group of young naval officers, known as the 'bird dogs,' who were active in planning postwar research and in the early organization and operation of ONR. Above all, they sought to foster a close working relationship with academic science. The unusual circumstances that allowed them the opportunity to pursue that mission on a grand scale included: a protected organizational niche under civilian authority, insulated from the practical outlook of the operational bureaus; relatively bounteous funds, initially from the transfer of wartime appropriations; and a special stimulus to overcome the Army monopoly over atomic research.
