Lee DuBridge

Lee Alvin DuBridge (21 September 1901 – 23 January 1994) was president emeritus of the California Institute of Technology (CALTECH).

Radar Research

DuBridge headed the radiation laboratory established at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by the National Defense Research Committee. The purpose of the laboratory was to develop radar for the military, in the type of collaboration between science and the Government that set the pattern for the Manhattan Project, which later developed the atomic bomb. The laboratory played a decisive role in keeping the Allies ahead in radar technology in World War II and established Dr. DuBridge's credentials as an administrator.[1]

Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

As at April 1984, Lee DuBridge served on the Board of Sponsors for The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists journal.[2]
