Vannevar Bush—Looking Back on the Bomb (1963)

In 1963, Vannevar Bush PhD ’16 was interviewed at his Belmont home for the MIT/WGBH television program Science Reporter and asked to reflect on the weapon he helped create, the atomic bomb. Bush, an inventor, engineer, and former professor and dean of the School of Engineering at MIT, is better known as the director of President Franklin Roosevelt’s Office of Scientific Research and Development. Remembered as "the first presidential science advisor,” Bush oversaw much of the United States’ wartime scientific research including, most famously, the development of the atomic bomb.
