Bromley, D Allan
▪ 2006

      Canadian-born American physicist and government official (b. May 4, 1926, Westmeath, Ont.—d. Feb. 10, 2005, New Haven, Conn.), was the founder and director (1963–89) of Yale University's A.W. Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory, where he conducted pioneering research in heavy ion physics, and was nationally known as the most influential science adviser in U.S. history as the architect (1989–93) of Pres. George H.W. Bush's science and technology policy. Bromley was an early advocate of the so-called data superhighway (the Internet) and was instrumental in securing funds for scientific research to keep American manufacturing from falling behind that of Japan and Germany. In his worldwide travels, he gave more than 400 speeches expounding on U.S. science policy. He wrote more than 500 scientific papers and wrote or contributed to more than 20 books. In 1988 Bromley was the recipient of the National Medal of Science, the nation's highest scientific award.
