Physics in the Great Depression
Weiner, Charles
Physics Today, 23, 10, 31-36 38, Oct '70
Describes the criticism of science during the early 1930's, when questions about the internal dynamics of the physics community- reduced research funds, slackening employment opportunities and lower public esteem for physics and its relationship with society were raised. States that the problem of social relevance of physics is still very real today. (LS)
