The United States success as a world leader has been intrinsically bound with its long-established tradition of public and private support of science and technology. For over a century, since the federally funded land- grant colleges first initiated a strong coupling between researchers and farmers, Americas ability to compete in world markets, assure her national security, and respond to the challenge of developing her own vast natural resources has been based on the nurturance of scientific and technological expertise. The public-private funding partnership which has underwritten Americas success has also secured her place as one of the preeminent societies in world history committed to the development of scientific knowledge.
