Notes

Abstract:
For the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program's Spring 2014 Intern Class. Doctor Vernon Roan, a former professor in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida, discusses his experiences both as an educator and as a researcher at UF throughout the years. As a researcher he elaborates on how his experience at the University earned him a position on the National Research Council and Council's efforts to achieve an alternative and more efficient fuel energy. He explains how hydrogen fuel cells is our best hope of ending society's dependence on fossil fuels, but recognizes that the lack of infrastructure based around hydrogen production is hindering America's progress towards achieving a long term solution.
