He has walked and worked with great men, stood at the heart of great world events, left his own indelible imprint on history. He helped build the first atomic bombs. Then, overwhelmed by horror at the consequences, he entreated men to renounce all destructive uses of atomic energy. Scientists, he warns, must be ever alert to the social impact of their work. Oliphant played a key role in the development of radar, helped establish a great university, co- founded a renowned scientific society.
