Figure Christopher and Lois Madison Matthew WeitzmanWilliam and Cynthia Gayden Michael McCormick and Donald Gellert and Elaine Koss Christine McCarthyDuring World War II my father worked at Carnegies Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, and later at the Applied Physics Laboratory, helping to develop the radio proximity fuze; a technology which aided the United States and its allies in winning the war. Though he was at Carnegie for only a short time, I remember him expressing his pride at having worked alongside James Van Allen and his admiration for then-Carnegie president Vannevar Bush. After the war, he left physics and went into medicine and was an internist when I was growing up. His stories of working in physics and medicine instilled in me an intense curiosity for all areas of science and an appreciation for the importance of scientific discovery.My fathers history with Carnegie Science and the important research they were doing drew me to get involved with the organization. Over the years Ive attended countless lectures hosted by Carnegie Science, and have always walked away with new ideas to ponder. Ive met many of the scientists and gotten to know them and their work. They express an enthusiasm for Carnegie Through Carnegie I am ablearising from the freedom theyre given to pursue their interests and from the to support basic researchunique collegiality of the Carnegie community.We are living in a time when scientific progress is essential to our survival with thepotential toand can help create a better world for future generations. Through open new paths ofCarnegie I am able to support basic research with the potential to open discovery. new paths of discovery. I know my money is going to support some of the brightest scientists, allowing them to pursue ideas that may transform our Charles B. Hunter understanding of ourselves and the universe we live in.'
