|"We live in a questioning time. The scope and complexity of the problems we face in modern society are growing with little promise of realistic answers in sight. Fortunately, we are also living in an inquiring, creative era. In fact the pursuit of science and technology since World War II has been so vigorous that it has grown to dominate much of our daily life."
J. Robert Schreiffer, Professor of Physics, 1962-1980, winner of Nobel Prize for Physics, 1972
