Slide title:
Endless Frontier
A Biography of Vannevar Bush
By G. Paschal Zachary

Slide words:
"Many scientists boasted after the war that radar had won it or the A-bomb had won it, but Bush refrained from identifying a single technological factor....Rather than identifying winning technologies, he identified the nation's political inventiveness as its unique strength."
