When historians of science think of
Wisconsin, the distinguishedprogram
in Madison undoubtedly comes to mind.
Located seventy miles east of Madison on
Lake Michigan, the city of Milwaukee is
the site of this year's History of Science
Society meeting, where we will be joined
by members of the Philosophy of Science
Association and the Society for Social
Studies of Science. The location of these
meetings in Milwaukee offers advantages
to travelers from both coasts.
Located near the Milwaukee River,
the Hyatt Regency (the HSS and PSA
conference hotel) is within walking distance
of dozens of the area's best restaurants.
Known for its European heritage, the city
offers traditional German and Italian cuisine.
The choices hardly stop there, however, as
options ranging from Thai to Irish to Indian
abound. Water Street and Old World Third
Street flank the Milwaukee River and offer
a wide selection of restaurants on every
On the lakefront, an excellent art
collection is now housed in one of the most
stunning examples of Santiago Calatrava's
postmodern architecture. The glass andwhite
composite building resembles, well, you will
have to decide for yourself ... A short walk
from the Hyatt, the Milwaukee Public
Museum offers a historical glimpse of the
city's past alongside extraordinary natural
history dioramas and cultural artifacts.
Train whistles can be heard at
intervals throughout the day as active rail
lines carry passengers and freight from all
points west toward Chicago. After a short
stop in Union Station in the Windy City,
visitors from the east make their way north

into Wisconsin. Those able to arrive at a
leisurely pace should check Amtrak
schedules to Milwaukee.
Although the major airports of
Chicago are close enough formany travelers
to the Milwaukee area, Milwaukee has its
own General Mitchell International Airport
(MKE). Mitchell International is the hub for
Midwest Express Airlines, which features
(at coach fares!) first-class seats throughout
the cabin onits fleet ofDC-9s, whichconnect
directly to most major cities east of the
Mississippi and severalto the west. All flights
include complimentary wine and warm,
fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies.
Travelers on a morning non-stop flight to the
East Coast on Midwest Express might be
served hot blueberry crepes.
Milwaukee's bookstores might
containtreasures for scholars since historians
of science frequent them far less often than
those in Madison.
Weather in early November can be
in the low 70s with cloudless skies, although
visitors should be prepared for evenings
with temperatures in the 30s. Lake Michigan
moderates the changes significantly; local
forecasters generally conclude their reports
inthe fall andwinter with the phrase, "warmer
near the lake."
Milwaukee is home to the world's
largest four-faced clock tower, which is
visible from the lakefront and throughout
the downtown area. It sits atop Rockwell
Automation's manufacturing plant, one of
the rare examples of American industry that
has managed to remain a part of a vital city
center. Nearby, Harley-Davidson is t
Milwaukee institution, celebrating its 100
anniversary next year.

Unlike othercities that experienced
deep recessions in the last third of the
twentieth century, Milwaukee managed to
keep most of its older buildings intact, even
if they were abandoned. As a result, the
recent renaissance ofthe downtown area has
included the refurbishing of beautiful
structures from the nineteenth century and
the restoration of their "cream city brick," a
unique local product that is featured in the
architecture of the Blatz Brewery and other
historical buildings. Of course, you can go
bowling in Milwaukee, and you can look for
the setting of your favorite "Laverne and
Shirley" episode.

Museum Features the First United States
Santiago Calatrava-Designed Building

T he Milwaukee Art Museum's monumental expansion project,
completed in October 2001, significantly expands the Museum's
role as a comprehensive art institution and strengthens its position
as a cultural cornerstone for the Milwaukee community and region.
This project, named Time magazine's "Best Design of 2001,"
features the new Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion,
renovated and reinstalled permanent collection galleries in existing
Museum buildings designed by Eero Saarinen and David Kahler,
and elegant public gardens designed by noted landscape architect
Dan Kiley.
The first Calatrava-designed building to be completed in
the United States, the Quadracci Pavilion, gives the Milwaukee Art
Museum an artistic identity. Signature elements of the Calatrava
design include the ReimanBridge, a250-ft-long suspendedpedestrian
bridge that links downtown Milwaukee directly to the lakefront and
the Museum. The bridge features a distinctive 200-foot angled mast
with cables and reflects Calatrava's unique experience in bridge
design throughout Europe. The Museum's main entrance leads into
a parabolic-shaped, glass-enclosed reception hall with a 90-foot
high ceiling. The Burke Brise Soleil, the moveable, wing-like
sunscreen comprised of 72 steel fins, rests on top of the glass-
enclosed reception hall and is raised and lowered to control both
temperature and light in the structure.
Using materials such as steel and glass, Calatrava's work
inspires a synthesis of light, space, material, form and structure.
"Rather than just add something to the existing buildings, I also
wanted to add something to the lakefront," said Calatrava. "I have
therefore worked to infuse the building with a certain sensitivity to
the culture ofthe lake -the boats, the sails, and the always-changing
landscape. I also wanted to design a piece of the city, not simply an
isolatedbuilding. I consider Milwaukee to be young citywithhuge
potential, and I see this design as an opportunity to not only create
a building, but to articulate the dynamic potential of the city,"
Calatrava continued.
World-renowned landscape architect Dan Kiley has
designed an extraordinary network of gardens, hedges, plazas, and
fountains to complement the Milwaukee Art Museum's new facility.
Kiley's design for an arrival-plaza garden is inspired by the clean
lines of Calatrava's work and seeks to synthesize the dynamics
between the city, the new building and the natural environment.
The rectangular garden site 600 feet long and 100 feet
wide will parallel the new addition. A series of 10-foot tall hedge
lines will divide the garden into five lawns with a paved plaza at
each end. Monumental fountains rising to 50 feet within a 40-foot
pool will anchor the center of each plaza. The plazas will be
connected by a narrow 3-foot-wide water channel that will run the
entire length of the garden. Water jets within the channel will create
a solid 6-foot high water curtain that will dance and sparkle with
fiber optic lights.

A Wonderful Life: On Stephen Jay Gould and Ourselves
By Andrew Hamilton

The week that Stephen Jay Gould died, I was preparing an
essay that defended him and his most recent book. It is a sad
irony that my principle focus was to be the obituary for Carl Sagan
that he published in Science in 1997. There, Gould celebrates
Sagan's life and work, but also voices deep concern and
embarrassment for the way Sagan was treated by some of his peers.
Because of his interest in popularizing science, Sagan was often
treated as misguided, silly, and even as a danger to good science.
Gould has suffered similar abuse over the years. In Gould's case,
as in Sagan's, character assassination has often taken the place of
disagreementamongreasonablepeople. The oft-repeatedcomments
over the last year or two that Gould's evolutionary ideas were just
a confused muddle are a case in point. Whatever his foibles were,
confused thinking about evolution was not among them. While he
was not always right and was not always even-handed, his science
did not lack clarity of vision.
Gould was well aware, of course, that his reputation
among his colleagues suffered from The Carl Sagan Effect. His
obituary of Sagan contains a defense of rigorous and responsible
popularization and a salute to Sagan for having done it so well.
Gould's view there and in the prologue to Bullyfor Brontosaurus
is that we have misunderstood the category of popular science
writing. Inthe latterworkhe argues that in"equating popularization
with trivialization, cheapening or inaccuracy" we merely show
ignorance of what science writing can be. Gould maintained for
twenty-five years that it is entirely possible to write popular
science that is not pap-indeed he hinted once or twice that clear
and accessible presentation is a duty of science that "feeds at a
public trough." In print and in speeches he encouraged the
scientific community to recover a genre of fine science writing
that makes "no compromises with conceptual richness."
For his own efforts in popularization, he was rewarded
with fame and a platform from which he could reach large
audiences. He was also rewarded with charges of trivialization,
cheapening, and inaccuracy, as well as with a degraded scientific
reputation. To the detriment of an intelligent and curious public,
as well as to publicly funded science, we have not, despite
Sagan's and Gould's best efforts, recovered science writing.
Again a sad irony: we have also not learned the lesson Gould
urged when Carl Sagan died. Many who disagreed with Gould's
ideas rejected not only them, but him.
Gould's use of his access to the lay public should not go
unnoticed. In a recent review, philosopher Michael Ruse referred
to Gould's public platform as a "bully pulpit," and argued that
Gould distorted while reporting. While it is certainly true that
Gould publicly favored his own theses about the shifting pace of

evolutionary change and the nature of adaptive traits and their
explanations, I know of no cases where he has misrepresented the
evidence or misreported the state of the field in order to convince
the lay reader that he is correct. It is not, after all, the lay reader
who must be convinced if theses in science are to be adopted.
Gould's theoretical work certainly does enjoy support from
eminent scientists, though it is rejected by equally eminent others.
There are indeed grounds for disagreement over whether Gould's
thinking about saltation and adaptation are correct. But this shows
that there are open questions in evolutionary theory, not that
Gould was a poor practitioner of his craft or that he willfully
mislead his readers.
It should not be overlooked that Gould often made quite
good use of his bully pulpit. He was unrelenting in his criticism
of creationism, human intelligence testing, and other pseudo-
sciences. By this same token, he was also critical of the branches
of science that he knew best. Though his detractors claimed that
his practice of airing the problems within evolutionary theory
provided the creationists with ammunition, the pointing out of
such inconsistencies can only make science stronger in the long
run. Dirty laundry ought not to be left in the hamper, since it can
be more embarrassing when it is discovered. I agree with Ruse
that Gould was often heavy-handed, but Gould was also an
effective defender of his discipline, of science, and of rationality.
He exalted in the intellectual puzzles that nature presents and
encouraged the public to do the same and to do so according to
the example of the humanist scientist.
With Gould's passing we lose the opportunity to show
another great popularizer that we appreciate his work as
popularizer. We also lose a talented researcher, essayist, and
teacher. As we suffer the void left by his absence, we should ask
ourselves what it was he was trying to tell us all those years, what
he tried to tell us in 1997. If we do, we may yet come to accept the
lesson that he urged over the course of his career. I have tried here
to reiterate this lesson, but it is only proper to give Stephen Jay
Gould the last word on a topic so dear to him:

"You had a wonderful life Carl, although too short. You will,
however, always be with us, especially if we as a profession can
learn from you that the common touch enriches science and
extends an ancient tradition that lies at the heart of Western
humanism, and does not represent (when properly done) a
journalistic perversion of the 'sound bite' age."

(Andrew Hamilton is a graduate student in the Philosophy and
Science Studies program atthe University of California, San Diego.)



The Mercurians is a Special Interest Group
(SIG) of the Society for the History of
Technology (SHOT) that began meeting in
1986 for the purpose of connecting people
who share work and interests in the history
of communication technologies, defined
broadly. Their membership and interests,
like those of its parent organization, SHOT,
are international in composition and scope.
Among its activities are semi-annual
newsletters, Antenna, an annual meeting
held in conjunction with that of SHOT, and
the pursuit of contacts and exchanges
between meetings. Antenna serves both as a
clearinghouse for readers and an informal
forum for their ideas.
Antenna welcomes contributions,

with David Seaman, Director of the
Electronic Text Center at the University
of Virginia Library. "Significant
collaboration among all team members
was instrumental inthe project's success,"
according to Linda Watson, Health
Sciences Library Director.
Like the contemporary AIDS
epidemic, yellow fever was a deadly
scourge that had a devastating effect on
lives and economies throughout the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In
1900, Walter Reed, M.D., and his fellow
members of the United States Army Yellow
Fever Commission made the discovery that

a mosquito was responsible for the
transmission of yellow fever. "The prayer
that has been mine for twenty or more years
that I might be permitted in some way or
sometime to do something to alleviate
human suffering has been answered," wrote
Walter Reed, an 1869 graduate of the
University of Virginia School of Medicine,
to his wife Emilie on December 31, 1900.
The Yellow Fever Commission's
experiments in Cuba were a great
breakthrough in medicine for which Walter
Reed was awarded the Congressional
Medal of Honor and elevated to the status
of American medical hero.
Philip S. Hench, M.D., awarded
theNobelPrize forhis discovery ofcortisone,
was fascinated by the story of Walter Reed
and the Yellow Fever Commission and
made it his life's work to collect everything
relevant to this public health story. He met
and befriended all the people associated
with the story or their relatives, most of
whom gave him original family documents
and photographs. The extensive archive
that Hench compiled was given to the
University of Virginia after his untimely
death- he did not live to write his definitive

book on Walter Reed andyellow fever -and

The Research Libraries Group (RLG) is pleased to announce an enhancement to
members' RLG Citation Resources subscription. In response to needs expressed by the user
community, RLG has just implemented the OpenURL protocol. OpenURL provides a
standardized mechanism to link from citation and bibliographic records to full text, print
holdings, and extended resources. This new feature is available in the recently released
version ofthe Eureka interface. To take advantage ofthis linking service, institutions must
have local software typically referred to as an OpenURL resolver or server. Examples
include 1Cate from Openly, SFX from ExLibris, and LinkFinderPlus from Endeavor. RLG
neither provides OpenURL resolvers nor endorses any particular provider. The NISO
committee working toward an OpenURL standard maintains a Web site at http://
library.caltech.edu/openurl/ with extensive information.
If your institution supports a local resolver, you may activate OpenURL by
contacting the RLG Information Center, bl.ric@rlg.org, phone 1-800-537-7546 (North
America) or 1-650-691-2333 (outside North America). OpenURL only works with the new
streamlined "blue" Eureka. If you are still using the older "gold" Eureka, you will see a link
on the right-hand frame of the Eureka welcome page to the new streamlined version. The
RLG Information Center can set up your accounts to default to this new improved version.

The Virtual Laboratory, a new Web site devoted to the experimentalization of life, is
online. It collects and presents texts and images concerning various aspects of the
experimentalization of life, such as instruments, experiments, sites, and people. Moreover,
it contains a special Essay part where historians publish and discuss their research on
experimentationinthe life sciences, art, andtechnology. See: http://vlp.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de.

2002 Dibner History of Biology Seminar at the Marine Biological Laboratory

The Dibner Institute held the fourteenth program in the History of Biology at
the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, May 15-22
to study "The Business of Life: Life Sciences an Industry in the 20th Century."
John Beatty, James Collins, and Jane Maienschein co-organize this series of
history of biology programs and this year Rachel Ankeny and Nicolas Rasmussen
coordinated the weeklong seminar.
The group explored a range of collaborations across the life sciences and
industries through the century, asking questions about the complex relations among
scientists, the research they do, funding sources, and the businesses that they support
and are supported by. What counts as a life science, and what is biotechnology, John
Ceccati asked in his look at the brewing industry, taking us from "Beer to
Biotechnology and Back Again." Ceccati's laboratory demonstrations added a new
dimension to the scholarly discussions. John Perkins looked at the politics and
business of environmental protection and resource management, focusing on the
science and politics of yield assessments and their implications. Peter Neushul
introduced us to mariculture as an example of technology transfer, or in this case as
technology non-transfer since the technology that is so successful in Asia has found
only small support in the United States. He asked why, and what this tells us about
the science, the technology, and our social and policy responses or lack thereof.
William Summers asked what is an industry, and what relationships have developed
over time between bacteriology and industry, with what restraints and what values?
Sarah Jansen looked at pests: what is a pest, who says, on what grounds, and what
is done about it? She pointed to pest control as a form of hygiene, parallel in some
important ways to other hygiene studies and movements in the first half of the 20th
century. Nick Rasmussen discussed hormones and the grinding up of animal organs
to find and produce hormones. How many people knew that the Armour Company
produced hormones and hormone research alongside its hot dogs? Jonathan Simon
focused on cancer and chemotherapies, and conceptualizedpost WWII contributions
as a "war" or "attack" on this disease. Relations of curiosity-driven and mission-
oriented research, public interests and public funding, rapidly expanding
pharmaceutical interests, all within changing social and political contexts revealed
this as tremendously rich topic. Rachel Ankeny and Robert Cook-Deegan explored
the Human Genome Project and its assumptions and implications, and Charles
Weiner looked at the recombinant DNA debates in Cambridge, MA, in the 1970s as
related and as helping to set the stage for reactions to the genome project.
This seminar, far from presenting a closed set of polished papers, served
to introduce the complexities and opportunities for studying these rich interactions
between the life sciences and industry. "Funding" of science isn't just money;
rather venture capital and grants and contracts are all quite different and have
vastly different goals for the researchers accepting them. Historians of the life
sciences would benefit, we realized, from closer attention to economic and
business history. National and local contexts matter, of course, but so do the global
reaches of international companies and interests. The life sciences may not be
different from technology or the physical sciences in many ways, but insofar as
they are about us and carry different health and safety concerns, and insofar as
industry begins to work with biotic products and to change life, new questions
arise. Historians have only begun to realize what these questions might be, and
there is great opportunity to explore them. Let us not leave all the social and ethical
implications to bioethicists, the group decided, but rather include studies of the
changing bioethical context and implications in our historical studies.
One message to graduate students and younger scholars is this: here is a huge
area ripe for study. We need historians to take up the challenge, to carry out the serious
scholarly historical study, and to engage the larger world that is interested in issues of
biotechnology, industry, and the life sciences. This seminar began that discussion. If
people want to participate in the next round ofthinking together, contact Chris Young

Mephistos 2002 Graduate Student Conference
at Virginia Tech

he 20th Annual Mephistos Graduate
Student Conference was held at Virginia Tech, in
Blacksburg, Virginia, over the weekend of 14-17
March 2002. (The conference was open to graduate
students who participate in the broadly defined field
of "science studies"-meaning, the history,
philosophy, policy, and sociology of science,
technology, and medicine.) With great camaraderie
and a high level of scholarship, the graduate students
of the Center for Science and Technology Studies
(STS) hosted 34 students from 18 universities and 7
countries. Participants came from as far away as Israel
and Finland, while the range of scholarship spanned
from historical analyses of technology policy studies
to the ethical dimensions of science in national context.
The wide variety of students' backgrounds helped
foster an atmosphere of open dialogue and intense
discussion. In particular, several presentation themes
(such as technology transfer and the political
connotations of science) ledto sustained debate inside
and outside the official conference forum.
Mephistos has proven to be an invaluable
experience for graduate students inthe fields of science
and technology studies. The forum provides a unique
collegial atmosphere, with presentations limited to
graduate students, but with audiences from across
academic ranks. With such a diverse group of
participants, the students were able to gain an
appreciation for not only the various historical and
institutional contexts for science and technology, but
also the actual range in context for studies of science
and technology. We often hear about the
methodological diversity in science studies, but rarely
are those methods presented one beside the other in a
singular environment.
The revolving annual conference is generally
able to provide travel grants to all participants. This
year was no exception as generous grants were awarded
to all who visited Blacksburg. It is apparent that the
conference, founded over twenty years ago by then-
ambitious graduate students Lynn Nyhart and Tom
Broman, has become a significant and sustainable
event. Note that next year's Mephistos will be hosted
bythe University ofWisconsin at Madison. All faculty
members of HSS are encouraged to bring the
conference to the attention of their graduate students.
With that in mind, please look forward to a CFP for
Mephistos 2003 sometime this fall.




The Seven Pines Symposium

The Seven Pines Symposium is dedicated to bringing historians
philosophers, and physicists together for several days in a collaborative
effort to probe and clarify significant foundational issues in physics, as
they have arisen in the past and continue to challenge our understanding
today. The sixth annual Seven Pines Symposium was held from May 15-
19,2002, on the subject, "Symmetry and Symmetry Breaking in Physics."
It was convened in the Outing Lodge at Pine Point near Stillwater,
Minnesota, a beautiful facility surrounded by spacious grounds with many
trails for walking and hiking. Its idyllic setting and superb cuisine make it
an ideal location for small informal meetings. Its owner, Lee Gohlike, is the
founder of the Seven Pines Symposium.
Unlike the typical conference, twice as much time is devoted to
discussions following the talks than to the talks themselves, and long
mid-day breaks permit small groups to assemble at will. The speakers
prepare summarizing statements and background reading materials,
which are distributed in advance to all of the participants. Nineteen
historians, philosophers, and physicists were invited to participate in this
year's symposium. James Glanz, science writer for the New York Times,
also attended.
Each day the speakers set the stage for the discussions by
addressing major historical, philosophical, and physical issues related to
symmetry and symmetry breaking in physics. The morning of Thursday,
May 16, was devoted to the topic of "Lorentz Invariance," with Michel
Janssen (Minnesota) speaking on "The Role of Lorentz Invariance in
Reshaping Fundamental Physics, 1895-1911" and William G. Unruh
(British Columbia) speaking on "Lorentz Invariance and its Status in
General Relativity and String Theory." The topic that afternoon was "The
Rise and Fall of Charge Symmetry," with Allan D. Franklin (Colorado)
speaking on "The Discovery of CP Violation: A Convincing Experiment"
and Bruce Winstein (Chicago) speaking on "Charge, Parity, and CP
Violation." In the morning of Friday, May 17, OtAvio Bueno (California
State, Fresno) spoke on "Group Theoretical Methods in Quantum
Mechanics: Weyl and Wigner" and Yuval Ne'eman (Tel Aviv) spoke on
"Symmetry Groups in Particle Physics." That afternoon the topic was "The
Noether Theorems," with Michel Janssen (Minnesota) and Tilman Sauer
(Caltech) speaking on "Einstein, Hilbert, and Klein: The Background to
Noether's Theorems" andHarvey Brown (Oxford) speaking on"Philosophical
Perspectives on the Noether Theorems." The morning of Saturday, May 18,
was devoted to the topic of "Gauge and Internal Symmetries," with John
Earman (Pittsburgh) speaking on "The Nature of Gauge Symmetry" and
Serge Rudaz (Minnesota) speaking on "Symmetries in the Standard Model
and their Spontaneous Breaking." That afternoon Jeffrey Harvey (Chicago)
spoke on "Supersymmetry" and Katherine Brading (Oxford) spoke on
"Some Philosophical Reflections on Symmetry." Roger H. Stuewer
(Minnesota) chaired the closing discussion on Sunday morning, May 19.
The Symposium founder, Lee Gohlike, has had a life-long
interest in the history and philosophy of physics, which he has furthered
through graduate studies at the Universities of Minnesota and Chicago. To
plan the symposia, which meet annually, he established an advisory board
consisting of Roger H. Stuewer (Minnesota), Chair, Jed Z. Buchwald
(Caltech), John Earman (Pittsburgh), Geoffrey Hellman (Minnesota), Don
Howard (Notre Dame), andAlanE. Shapiro (Minnesota). Also participating
inthe sixth annual SevenPines Symposiumwere John D. Norton (Pittsburgh)
and Robert M. Wald (Chicago).
The seventh annual Seven Pines Symposium will be held from
May 7-11, 2003, on the subject, "The Concept of the Vacuum in Physics."


Brent Dibner Named Chairman of the Dibner Institute
for the History of Science and Technology

avid Dibner announces with pleasure that the Dibner
Fund has named his son, Brent Dibner, as his successor
to the chairmanship of the Dibner Institute for the History of
Science and Technology, effective immediately. The Dibner
Institute, an independent institution located on the campus of
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is a decade-old
internationally recognized center for advanced research in
the history of science and technology. With well-established
programs including senior, post doctoral and graduate resident
fellowships, the Institute also provides weekly colloquia,
conferences and workshops, as well as two publications
series and a growing sponsored research component.
The Dibner Institute enjoys an established linkage
with the academic life of MIT, which is reinforced by its
director holding the Bern Dibner Chair in the History of
Science and Technology at MIT. In addition, Harvard
University and Boston University join MIT in a scholarly
consortium participating in the programs of the Dibner
Institute. Representatives of all three universities, along with
the Dibner Fund and certain outside members constitute the
governing board of the Dibner Institute.
Brent Dibner, who is 50, is a Vice President ofMercer
Management Consulting, a global general management
consulting firm, where he has directed its consulting services to
companies engaged in global bulk shipping and logistics of
energy and raw materials since joining the firm in 1977. For the
last decade he has served as vice-president and trustee of the
Dibner Fund as well as a trustee of the Dibner Institute for the
History of Science and Technology. His involvement with the
history ofscience andtechnology beganingrade schoolwhenhe
catalogued and preserved books and manuscripts for his
grandfather atthe Bumdy Library, then inNorwalk, Connecticut
and now co-located at the Dibner Institute. He was a practicing
engineer designing both commercial andnaval ships inthe early
1970's. Since 1995 he has been president of aNational Historic
Landmark tugboat that pioneered diesel-electric technology and
since 1992 has edited a quarterly maritime historic journal. He
earned a B.S.E in naval architecture and marine engineering
from the University of Michigan and a Masters degree in
business administration from the Harvard Business School.
With this announcement, David Dibner becomes
chairman emeritus and trustee of the Dibner Institute. The
Dibner Institute is supported by the Dibner Fund, a private
foundation in Connecticut. The Fund, established in 1959 by
Bern Dibner, has long underwritten programs in the history of
science and technology, a field of study that was of particular
interestto him. Since 1988 David Dibner, his son, has chaired
the Dibner Fund and became chairman of the Dibner Institute
when it was established by him and his wife, Frances K.
Dibner, in 1991. David Dibner will continue as chairman of
the Dibner Fund, whose mission has expanded over the years
to include programs in science education, humanitarian aid,
the preservation of water resources, peaceful coexistence and
Jewish heritage and culture in addition to its on-going
commitment to the history of science and technology.




The Dibner Institute for the History of Science and
Technology invites applications to its two fellowship
programs for the academic year 2003-2004: the Senior
Fellows program and the Postdoctoral Fellows program.
Some twenty-five Dibner Fellows are resident at the Institute
each year.

The Dibner Institute is an international center for advanced
research in the history of science and technology,
established in 1992. It draws on the resources of the
Burndy Library, a major collection of both primary and
secondary material in the history of science and
technology, and enjoys the participation in its programs
of faculty members and students from the universities
that make up the Dibner Institute's consortium: the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the host institution;
Boston University; and Harvard University.

The Institute's primary mission is to support advanced
research in the history of science and technology, across a
wide variety of areas and a broad spectrum of topics and
methodologies. The Institute favors projects that address
events dating back thirty years or more; and, while
recognizing that overlap between the history of medicine
and the history of biology makes strict distinctions
impossible, the Institute generally does not supportprojects
in the history of clinical medicine.

Senior Fellows Program

Candidates for Senior Fellowships should have advanced
degrees in disciplines relevant to their research and show
evidence of substantial scholarly accomplishment and
professional experience. Senior Fellows may apply for a
second fellowship appointment five years after their first
