[A]t the invitation of Rear Admiral Earl E. Stone, USN, then Superintendent of the U. S. Naval Postgraduate Scrnol, approximately sixty leaders in industry, government, and education met in Monterey, California, October 24-25, 1956, for the first conference of the !SF Brainpower Forum. This conference served to highlight the fact that we had not effectively utilized all sources of scientific manpower which were presently available. At the recommendations of the Forum partici- pants, the International Science Foundation initiated a continuing pro- gram in the area of scientific manpower and suggested that several of its members set up projects which would provide answers to some of the problems considered at the 1956 conference. As a matter of first priority, it was decided to give consideration to the gains that might be realized by giving recognition to and seeking better utilization of retired or senior professional manpower. The 1958 conference was held to give Forum participants an opportunity to report on projects in the area of senior scientific manpower that were conducted as a result of suggestions made at the 1956 conference. Among the NPS participants: Roy S. Glasgow, Dean; Captain H. M. Heming, USN, Director, Engineering School; Frank E. LaCauza, Academic Chairman, General Line and Naval Science School; Captain Paul Foley, Jr., USN, Chief of Staff; Dr. Austin R. Frey, Chairman, Department of Physics; Mitchell L. Cotton, Assistant Professor of Engineering Electronics
Held August 6-8, 1958, U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California
