Slide image: Two images – a book cover and a photograph of Professor Rustum Roy.

Details:
Left: On the left is the cover of a book, entitled "Lost at the Frontier: U. S. Science and Technology Policy Adrift" by Deborah Shapley/Rustum Roy. Below the authors’ names the cover says, "With responses from: W.O. Baker, George E. Brown, Jr. (D-Calif.), Pat Choate, Harry C Gatos, Walter A. Hahn, James R. Killian, Jr., Edwin H. Land, F. James Rutherford, and Eric A. Walker." The book was published in 1985. The illustration in the center of the cover is a line drawing of the back of a male scientist with his hands behind his back holding a clipboard. He looks to the left. On either side of the scientist are simple line drawings including buildings, earth, water, sky, a telescope, satellite, and a rocket launching. Right: The photo on the right shows Professor Rustum Roy, Director of Penn State University's Materials Research Laboratory; Evan Pugh Professor Emeritus of the Solid State, Penn State University; Distinguished Professor of Materials, Arizona State University; Visiting Professor of Medicine, University of Arizona. He is shown (in a photo taken circa 2000) with the largest (simulated) diamond beneath a bell jar. The diamond was presented to him by the Materials Research Society.
