[1] “Dispersal” was a campaign to permanently decentralize American cities before the USSR might acquire nuclear weapons to destroy, for the first time, an American city with only one bomb. A short-lived civil defense concept, dispersal was an idea that was rapidly outpaced in mid-1950s by the vast number and power of atomic weapons. No longer could there be hope to (simply) flee nuclear anhilation.” ]

 Worked with Richard Gans on Argentina’s Nuclear Project…

(August 29, 1903October 21, 1988) born in what was then the town of Reichenberg in Austria-Hungary, and is now Liberec in the Czech Republic. He studied physics in Vienna and received his doctorate in 1925, under Hans Thirring. He worked in Leipzig in 1928 as an assistant to Werner Heisenberg. A combination of the troubled political climate of Europe in the 1930s, his own restlessness, and the Nazi persecutions in Germany, made the Jewish-born Beck a traveller in those years. He worked in Prague, the United States, the former Soviet Union (at Odessa University, 1935-1937), and finally France, where he was imprisoned when World War II broke out. In 1941, he fled to Portugal, and in 1943 he emigrated to Argentina.

In Argentina, he was instrumental in training several Argentinian physicists, including José Antonio Balseiro, and had a profound impact in developing physics in Argentina. He moved once more, this time to Brazil, in 1951, where his influence in developing physics was also great.

He was called back to Argentina in 1962, after the death of Balseiro, and continued his work at the Instituto Balseiro. / In 1975 he returned to Brazil, and worked in the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas (CBPF). / Apart from his influence as a teacher in South America he contributed to a theory of beta-decay, which was later superseded by a more complete theory by Fermi.He was a friend of the famous writer Ernesto Sabato. / He died in a car accident in Rio de Janeiro in 1988.

16.) Bier, Justus (1933-1944) Univ. of Louisville / History of Art

See full size image Bier, Justus Date born: 1899 Place born: Nürnberg, Germany Date died: 1990 Place died: Raleigh, NC

Riemenschneider scholar, professor and director of the North Carolina Museum of Art. Bier grew up in a wealthy Nuremberg family. He attended the Humanistisches Gymnasium in that city. After graduation in 1917, he fought in the first World War 1917-18. Between 1919 and 1924 Bier studied art history, archaeology, and medieval and modern history at the universities in Munich, Erlangen, Jena, Bonn and finally Zurich. His major professors were Paul Clemen (q.v.) and Heinrich Wölfflin (q.v.). His dissertation, written under Wölfflin, was on the early work of his home town’s most famous artist, Tilman Riemenschneider. It was granted in 1924 and published the following year. Between 1924-1930 Bier he began publishing his magisterial book on Riemenschneider while lecturing (Dozent) at the Volkschule. He also contributed articles on modern architecture. In 1931 he married the art historian Senta Dietzel (1900-1978), whose brother was the gallery owner Max Dietzel, a sponsor of the Künstlergruppe Brücke shows and other modern art. From 1930-36 Bier was a curator of the Kestner Society and Museum in Hannover which mounted contemporary art exhibitions. Bier himself collected the work of Bauhaus artists Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer and Lyonel Feininger. In 1936 the Nazi government closed the Kestner Society and banished Bier, who was Jewish. Bier withdrew first to upper Bavaria and then, in 1937 immigrated to the United States. His former classmate, Richard Krautheimer (q.v.) recommended Bier for the position he was vacating at the University of Louisville, Kentucky. Bier taught art history there 1937-60, acting as Chair of the department 1946-60. While Chair at Louisville, he founded the Allen R. Hite Institute. He was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, during the year 1953-54, and visiting professor at the Freie Universität, Berlin in 1956 and a Fulbright lecturer in Würzburg, 1960-61. He supplied over two hundred pieces of art criticism for the Louisville Courier Journal. In 1960, Bier was appointed to be the second director of the state art museum in North Carolina, replacing the late Wilhelm Valentiner (q.v.). He functioned as director of the North Carolina Museum of art until his retirement in 1970. His papers are housed at the University of Louisville where an endowed chair is named for him.

Bier was a connoisseur-scholar who’s research focused principally on gothic and renaissance architecture and sculpture. He was an exponent of modern art and architecture and was friends with many Bauhaus architects (including Mies van der Rohe).

17.) Bloch, Felix (1933-1944) Radio Research Laboratory, Harvard / Physics

 (1905-1983) Swiss–American physicist (1905–1983) Bloch was born in Zürich, Switzerland, and educated at the Federal Institute of Technology there and at the University of Leipzig, where he obtained his PhD in 1928. He taught briefly in Germany and in 1933 moved to America, via various institutions in Italy, Denmark, and Holland. In 1934 he joined the Stanford staff, remaining there until his retirement in 1971 and serving from 1936 onward as professor of physics. He also served briefly (1954–55) as first director of the international laboratory for high-energy physics in Geneva, known as CERN.

In 1946, Bloch and Edward Purcell independently introduced the technique of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). This utilizes the magnetic property of a nucleus, which will interact with an applied magnetic field such that it takes certain orientations in the field (a quantum mechanical effect known as space quantization). The different orientations have slightly different energies and a nucleus can change from one state to another by absorbing a photon of electromagnetic radiation (in the radiofrequency region of the spectrum). The technique was used initially to determine the magnetic moment (i.e. the torque felt by a magnet in a magnetic field at right angles to it) of the proton and of the neutron. It has since, however, been developed into a powerful tool for the analysis of the more complex molecules of organic chemistry. The energy states of the nucleus are affected slightly by the surrounding electrons, and the precise frequency at which a nucleus absorbs depends on its position in the molecule. In 1952 Bloch shared the Nobel Prize for physics with Purcell for this work on NMR.

Bloch worked extensively in the field of solid-state physics developing a detailed theory of the behavior of electrons in crystals and revealing much about the properties of ferromagnetic domains.

Felix Bloch (October 23, 1905September 10, 1983) was a Swiss physicist, working mainly in the U.S. Bloch was born in Zürich, Switzerland to Jewish parents Gustav and Agnes Bloch. He was educated there and at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule, also in Zürich. Initially studying engineering he soon changed to physics. During this time he attended lectures and seminars given by Peter Debye and Hermann Weyl at ETH Zürich and Erwin Schrödinger at the neighboring University of Zürich. A fellow student in these seminars was John von Neumann. Graduating in 1927 he continued his physics studies at the University of Leipzig with Werner Heisenberg, gaining his doctorate in 1928. His doctoral thesis established the quantum theory of solids, using Bloch waves to describe the electrons.

He remained in European academia, studying with Wolfgang Pauli in Zürich, Niels Bohr in Copenhagen and Enrico Fermi in Rome before he went back to Leipzig assuming a position as privatdozent (lecturer). In 1933, immediately after Hitler came to power, he left Germany, emigrating to work at Stanford University in 1934, where he became the first professor for theoretical physics. In 1939, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. During WW II he worked on atomic energy at Los Alamos National Laboratory, before resigning to join the radar project at Harvard University.

After the war he concentrated on investigations into nuclear induction and nuclear magnetic resonance, which are the underlying principles of MRIHYPERLINK \l “cite_note-0”[1]. In 1946 he proposed the Bloch equations which determine the time evolution of nuclear magnetization. He and Edward Mills Purcell were awarded the 1952 Nobel Prize for “their development of new ways and methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements.”[2] In 1954–1955, he served for one year as the first Director-General of CERN. In 1961, he was made Max Stein Professor of Physics at Stanford University. /

18.) Bodky, Erwin (1934-1938, 1943-1944) Longy School of Music, Cambridge, Mass. / Music

“The German-American music scholar, Erwin Bodky, was known as a child prodigy on the piano by the age of 12. His his later music education included degrees …”

BODKY, ERWIN (1896–1958), musician
Papers, 1897–1958, 6 ft. (GER–023)
Biographical materials; letters of recommendation from Bruno Walter, Wilhelm Furtwängler, and others, 1922–1938; letters to his wife, 1915–1938, primarily as a German soldier in World War I; musical programs and reviews relating to his career as a keyboard performer and musicologist, 1908–1955; manuscripts relating to posthumously published book The Interpretation of Bach’s Keyboard Works (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1960); extensive manuscripts of his own compositions and arrangements (instrumental, vocal, orchestral, and chamber music), 1906–1926; and printed material. Bodky studied piano with Ferrucio Busoni and composition with Richard Strauss and performed widely on harpsichord and piano. He left Germany and lived in the Netherlands, 1933–1938, and the United States from 1938 until his death. He was a professor of music at Brandeis University.


Erwin Bodky, founder of the Cambridge Society for early Music, was born in East Prussia n 1896. By the age of twelve he was known as a child prodigy on the piano, and his later music education included degrees from the Preussiche Hochschule für Musik and the Scharwenka Conservatory in Berlin. Among his teachers were Richard Strauss, Ernst von Dohnányi, and Ferruccio Busoni. He performed under Wilhelm Furtwängler and Bruno Walter, and was twice awarded the prestigious Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Prize.

While still in Berlin, Bodky grew interested in the interpretation of early music, and more particularly in the music of J. S. Bach. He and Busoni parted ways when the latter discovered that Bodky was performing from urtexts and not Busoni’s arrangements. Bodky was able to borrow early keyboard instruments from the Berlin Collection and eventually obtained a harpsichord from a local builder. In the 1920’s Bodky made some of the first authentic instrument recordings of early music for L’Anthologie Sonore using an original Ruckers harpsichord. In 1932, he published his first book, Der Vortrag alter Klavier Musik (Performance Practice of Early Keyboard Music.

In 1938 Erwin Bodky came to America, where his talents, optimism, and determination were soon appreciated. His first position was on the faculty of the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts, teaching thoroughbass and music history. In 1950 he became the first professor of music at Brandeis University, and shortly thereafter began work on this last book Interpretation of Bach’s Keyboard Music, which was published in 1960 by Harvard University Press.

Upon his arrival at the Longy School of Music, Bodky began conducting the school’s orchestra in early music concerts at Harvard’s Germanic Museum. In 1942 he and a group of supporters formed a committee to continue the series in the Houghton Library at Harvard. The next year, the Cambridge Collegium Musicum was formed with Wolfe Wolfinsohn, Iwan D’Archambeau, and Erwin Bodky as its nucleus, performing with guest artists for larger works. These concerts were groundbreaking, communicating the findings of scholarly research through persuasive performances. By the 1949-50 season the audiences had grown so large that it was necessary to hold the events in Sanders Theatre, and in 1952, the Collegium was reorganized as the Cambridge Society for Early Music. Erwin Bodky died in 1958, leaving behind him the memory of a man of great purpose and a Society which has continued to this day in the pursuit of his high ideals.

The Cambridge Society for Early Music is America’s oldest organization for the promotion of music up to the early 19th century. From the very first concerts in the 1940’s Erwin Bodky presented audiences with programs mixing familiar and little-known names, from Bach, Scarlatti, and Rameau to Reicha, Kozeluch, and Punto. The late Harvard Professor of Music G. Wallace Woodworth, wrote that it was Bodky “who stated the aim of the Society- to offer the musical public of Boston and Cambridge a series of concerts devoted to the music of the Renaissance, the Baroque, and the early Classical periods, and to perform that music in a manner faithful to the style of the period in which it was written. It was he who interpreted that ideal, not in terms of dry pedantry, but in live music-making, which sought to bring forth in our day the deepest beauties of the older art. It was he who believed passionately that the listeners of the twentieth century would respond to that beauty, as they have, with everlasting gratitude to the founder for that life-giving experience.”

Over the years since Bodky’s death the Cambridge Society for Early Music has continued in the spirit of its founder, presenting solo, chamber, choral, and orchestral concerts of early music. It has dug deep into the riches of five centuries of music, educating, enlightening, entertaining, and musically satisfying its audiences. performances have included local, national, and foreign musicians. These have range from psaltery and fortepiano soloists to viol consorts and lute song ensembles, from soloists such as Ralph Kirkpatrick, Frans Brüggen, and Gustav Leonhardt, to orchestras such as Concentus Musicus Wien under Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the English Baroque Soloists under John Eliot Gardner.

The Chamber Music by Candlelight Series was begun by the CSEM in 1981, presenting concerts in small halls, allowing audiences a contact with the music and musicians such as would have been common in the past, but which is rarely affordable in this age of the large concert hall. Each of these concerts is toured over the period of a week through several communities outside the Boston-Cambridge area, reaching new and expanding audiences.

The Society is particularly proud of its encouragement of talented your musicians. In 1968, in honor of Erwin Bodky’s pioneering efforts, the Society established the Bodky Competition. In three decades over forty musicians have received the Bodky prize, and many of them are now leaders in the field of early music with extensive performing and recording careers.

The Cambridge Society for Early Music, the first such society in America, has contributed enormously to establishing the Boston area’s reputation as the early music capital of America. It has acted as a focal point for greater understanding and appreciation of the vast repertory in this field and has inspired other such societies across the country. Building on its own past, the Society looks towards a future with many more advances to come and carries forward its commitment to making the great and wonderful music of our past a continuing source of enrichment for our present.

 Chemistry at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem– Historical Milestones
The Institute of Chemistry at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem was the first of its kind to be established in the country when the University was founded in 1925. The moving spirit in establishing the Institute of Chemistry was Dr. Chaim Weizmann, the first President of the State of Israel.

The Institute of Chemistry was the first institute in the Faculty of Science and was founded (together with the Institute of Judaism) so as to emphasize the importance of natural science in general and that of chemistry in particular. After much debate on the character and form of the institute, it was decided to emphasize graduate research at the highest level and only on this basis to undertake undergraduate teaching.

It was Prof. A. Fodor who in 1924 established the institute, a year before the official opening of the Hebrew University. In due course, departments were set up, such as the Dept of Organic Chemistry, under Prof. Moshe Weizmann in 1927, and at the same time the Dept of Inorganic Chemistry, founded by Prof. M. Bobtelsky. In 1935, when the well known Prof. L. Farkas joined the Hebrew University, the Dept of Physical Chemistry was founded as well.

Among the leading proponents of the different research fields developed during the twenties and thirties of last century, many famous names can be found. To name a few: Profs. Frenkel and A.D. Bergmann in Organic Chemistry, Prof. G. Stein in Physical Chemistry, Profs. Kirson and Glazner in Inorganic Chemistry. The students, scientific grandchildren and great-grandchildren of these founding scholars are today the backbone of chemistry and its various branches at academic institutions and industry at large of the State of Israel.

 The Judaica-Division of the Frankfurt Municipal and University-Library comprises the largest collection of literature on Judaism and Israel in the Federal Republic of Germany. 1. History The origins of this Collection go back to the old Hebraica and Judaica Collection which was founded at the end of the 19 th century by donations of Frankfurt Jews. At the beginning of the 20 th century it was growing steadily due to the generous support of well-to-do Frankfurt Jewish families, like the Rothschilds, to name only one, but certainly the most famous of these Frankfurt Jewish patriotic benefactors. These families financed the acquisition of large Jewish collections of books and manuscripts of Rabbis and scholars from Frankfurt and abroad. When the last Frankfurt Rothschild, Baron Wilhelm Carl von Rothschild died in 1901, his widow donated his private collection to the library.Aron Freimann was in charge of the collection for 35 years, from 1898 till 1933, and made it the largest and most signifanct Judaica-Collection of the European continent. Thus he created the basis for the collection of today. Freimann was an outstanding personality, named “Master of Jewish Bibliography” and characterized as “the greatest living authority in the fields of Jewish Bibliography” in the 20 century. After being dismissed in April 1933, he succeeded to emigrate to the States in 1939, where he continued to work at the New York Public Library. Being 68 years old, he became the oldest Foreign Scholar on the list of the Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced Scholars to receive financial aid.

In 1933, after Freimanns dismissal, the collection contained about 40.000 volumes, half of it Hebraica – id est Hebrew books. During the Second World War most of the Hebrew Books were destroyed, with only a few special valuable Hebrew units remaining.The Judaica Old Stocks, containing about 20.000 volumes were rescued, as was the old catalogue compiled by Aron Freimann.

John H. E. Fried Papers / Biographical Sketch:
John H. E. Fried (1905-1990), lawyer, professor and human rights activist, came to the United States in 1938 from Vienna, Austria shortly after its annexation by Hitler. Before immigrating to the United States, Fried, who received his Doctor of Law and Political Science from the University of Vienna in 1930, was a member of the Vienna Bar and also served a five-year term as panel member of the Vienna Labor Relations Court.
Upon his arrival in New York in the summer of 1938, Fried joined the Institute for Social Research of Columbia University. During the course of the next few years, he wrote three highly acclaimed books (The Guilt of the German Army, 1942; The Significance of Democracy: Constitutional Developments and Labor Relations in Austria, 1944; and The Exploitation of Foreign Labor by Germany, 1945), obtained a Ph.D. in Public Law and Government from Columbia University, held posts as Research Associate at Columbia University and the New School for Social Research, taught at City College and the Extension Department of Columbia, and became a senior official of the international secretariat of the International Labor Organization (I.L.O.), located in Montreal, Canada.
In January of 1947, the U.S. War Department requested Fried’s services for a three-month survey of certain aspects of the law of war, and to serve as Consultant to the U.S. Secretary of War, assigned to the U.S. War Crimes Tribunals in Nuremberg, Germany. In March 1947, Fried was asked to remain in Nuremberg as Special Legal Consultant to the U.S. Judges at the trials, to advise on questions relating to all aspects of the law of war and war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against peace, as well as many other questions of international law. After the trials ended in Spring 1949, Fried, by decision of all presiding judges, was made their representative for the preparation of the official U.S. government publication of these trials. He was transferred to the Judge Advocate General’s Office, Department of the Army, The Pentagon, where he worked until the end of 1950. The proceedings of the 12 trials were published in 14 volumes, Trials of War Criminals before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals (Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1950-1953), with the introduction to each of the twelve cases stating: “John H. E. Fried, Special Legal Consultant to the Tribunals, reviewed and approved the selection and arrangement of the material as the designated representative of the Nuremberg Military Tribunals.”
Over the next three decades, Fried held academic positions at the City College of New York, Columbia University, Pittsburgh University, the New School for Social Research (NY), and from 1968 until his retirement as Professor of Political Science at the Lehman College, Graduate Faculty of the City University of New York. He continued to serve the international community, working for the United Nations in various capacities, as Legal Officer and Program Officer of the Technical Assistance Administration of the U.N., as Legal Advisor (on international law) to the Government of Nepal, and lastly as U.N. Non-Governmental Organization Representative of the Foundation for the Establishment of an International Criminal Court.
In addition to his book publications, Fried presented numerous lectures and papers at universities, national and international conferences. Seven papers were selected from the John H.E. Fried Papers and published in 1994 as Toward a Right to Peace. Selected Papers of John H. E. Fried. With a foreword by Roger S. Clark (Northampton, MA: Aletheia Press, c1994). Additional collections of materials pertaining to John H. E. Fried are located at the Leo Baeck Institute (NY) and the Simon Wiesenthal Center of Yeshiva University of Los Angeles. /

In 19– he became a student of Friedrich Meinecke at Berlin University, where he achieved a doctor of philosophy in 1924. After establishing at Heidelberg in 1926, he became Privatdozent there until he was called back to Berlin as Carnegie Professor of History and International Relationships at the private Deutsche Hochschule für Politik; there he worked until his dismissal in 1933.

To avoid the Nazi terror, that same year he fled to the United Kingdom, then emigrated to the United States in 1934. Shortly after coming to America, he was appointed guest professor of German history at Yale. He taught Diplomatic History at Tufts University, Mass., (1936–1942) and was a guest professor at the University of Vienna, Austria (1955). He became a U.S. citizen and during the Second World War he worked for the Office of Strategic Services as special assistant to the chief of its Research and Analysis Branch, William L. Langer. At the conclusion of the war he served as Randolph W. Townsend professor at Yale until 1959, when he was awarded the title of Sterling Professor of History at Yale University; here he continued to teach and write until his death in 1969.

In 1967 Holborn became the first president of the American Historical Association not born in the United States. Several specialists of German and European History in America, including Peter Gay, were students of Holborn.

Like their father, Hajo Holborn’s children pursued successful careers in academic scholarship. His son Fred Holborn was a senior adjunct professor of American Foreign Policy at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University before his death in 2005. Holborn’s daughter, Hanna Holborn Gray (born 1930), is a historian of political thought in the Renaissance and Reformation. She is the Harry Pratt Judson Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago and was the University’s President for 15 years.

Prior to his emigration, Holborn was commissioned by the government to compose a history of the constitution of the Weimar Republic, resulting in the work “The Weimar Republic and the Birth of the German Democratic Party: The Hajo Holborn Papers, 1849-1956.” Other works by Holborn include the History of Modern Germany series, spanning three volumes and covering a four-century period culminating in the capitulation of Hitler‘s regime in 1945.

Holborn’s work has been praised by several of his distinguished peers (e.g. Fritz Stern).
