Of special note, were his early psychoanalytic studies with [...]

Returning to the United States to further his education, Ron enrolled in the engineering school of George Washington University where he joined the first classes on nuclear physics — then called Atomic and Molecular Phenomena. It was [...]
The story starts in the physics laboratories of George Washington University in 1930. Quite coincidentally at almost this same time Professor Thomas Brown in charge of that department, was launching experiments which within fifteen years would bring forth an atomic bomb upon earth largely through Dr. George Gamow an assistant in this same laboratory.
Unwitting of [...]

The interest in this bad hat stems from the fact that he blew the whistle on Dianetics when St. Elizabeth psychiatrists were just beginning to use it and were [...]
