Building Research Eminence in the Physical Sciences at Berkeley

April 10, 2018, 12:00pm
The physical sciences at Berkeley were built to the highest stature in the first half of the twentieth century through an ad-hoc process driven by several key intellectual leaders among the faculty. Some of the most important factors were the strong institutional interests of these faculty leaders, enablement by the administration, the establishment of the Board of Research, chartering of formal roles for the faculty through the Berkeley Revolution of 1919, the intellectual styles of Gilbert Lewis and Ernest Lawrence in particular, approaches to building that reached across the individual disciplines, identification and assessment of the most promising faculty prospects by leading researchers themselves, and the multidisciplinary activities and opportunities afforded by Lawrence’s laboratory as it grew.
Registration is unavailable.
