Description


Millikan’s School presents an interesting and thoroughly reliable account of the astonishing change over a period of a few years of a small technical school in Pasadena, California, into one of the world’s leading scientific institutions.” —Linus Pauling


Written in honour of its centenary, this history of Caltech explores its contribution to science and technology by providing profiles of its most famous scientists, such as von Karman in aeronautics, Morgan in biology, Gutenberg in seismology, Noyes in physical chemistry and Epstein in physics.
