History of American Industrial Science

Excerpt

It should be a matter of considerable interest to all Americans that in this country has been developed the most extensive and intricate industrial organization that the world has ever known. The fact that this is true is taken for granted by many people and is unnoticed by others. Students of American history should be aware that this massive industrial growth has a meaning for them, for it points out what is perhaps the chief characteristic of the American nation: its industrial "know-how."

Whether many of us fully appreciate the significance of American industrial science or not, it is certainly important that we begin to do so, for it has done more to make the United States a strong nation than any other field of activity that we can name. Furthermore, as our defense authorities are well aware, industrial science has contributed more to our national security than has any other asset which we have developed. Adequate preparedness, in a military sense, we seldom have had at the occurrence of an emergency. Since 1860, however, we have always possessed the industrial and technical resources to build a defense which has met the demands of the time.
