Dr. Millikan

Dr. Millikan

Dr. Millikan, of The Californian Institute of Technology, Pasadena, is today the leading authority and research worker in the cosmic ray field of investigation. He started his research work some fifty years ago, at a period when physicists were beginning to realise that there were more than just the visible rays of the spectrum, and during his life he has seen opened up and explored, and has helped to open up and explore, practically the whole range of electromagnetic frequencies. In addition to this work in physics research, Dr. Millikan has studied and has written books on the social values of science. In a world ridden with hate and fear, we of the younger generation are looking to the men of Dr. Millikan's type to help us build a new civilisation from the chaos into which ours is so rapidly falling.
