systems. Mr. Schleicher has had considerable management experience as a result of his assignments both in the military and industry, and has also served as a management sciences consultant. DR. JAMES C. ALLER, a biomedical engineer, graduated from the U. S. Naval Academy (B.S., Electrical Engineering, 1942) and served for 20 years as a Naval officer and test pilot specializing in electronic warfare, missiles and flight systems. He received the M.A. and M.E.S. degrees from Harvard University and the D.Sc. degree from George Washington University, where he is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical Engineering. He formerly held the chair in Physical Science at the Naval War College, where he was also a member of the Advanced Technology Committee. Experienced in the design and development of advanced medical systems and computer technology, he is a senior member of the IEEE, a member of the Society for Advanced Medical Systems and Editorial Advisor to Biocharacterist. He has been a consultant to the President's Advisory Council on Management Improvement (Health) and a Fellow in Medical Systems Development (United States Public Health Service). CHRISTOPHER BIRD is a writer who came into the biocommunications field while researching a biographical study of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich. After receiving his B.A. in Biology at Harvard University (1951) and a Certificate in Chinese at Yale University (1950) he completed the course work for an M.A. in Anthro-pology at the University of Hawaii (1957). He is currently a candidate for the Ph.D. degree in Russian Area Studies at American University. After his military service, he became Washington Representative for the Rand Development Corporation of Cleveland, Ohio, whose president, Dr. H. J. Rand, was one of the first to undertake private negotiations with the Soviet Union for the purchase of technical devices and information. Fluent in French and Russian, Mr. Bird has been an editor of the Gallatin Annual of International Business and a correspondent for Time Magazine in Yugoslavia. DR. CHARLES R. BUFFLER, a research physicist, received his B.S. (1951) from the University of Texas and his M.S. (1956) and Ph.D. (1959) from Harvard University. After conducting experiments in spin wave analysis of ferromagnetic resonance, he went on to study the effects of weak or near-zero magnetic fields on humans and the theoretical aspects of microwave interaction with various materials. He has also experimented on a possible biomagnetic explanation for dowsing and investigated ESP phenomena. Some of this work was in collaboration with Professor Yves Rocard, Director of the Laboratory of Physics at the Ecole Normale Superieure, University of Paris.
The story of Mankind Research is the story of the paranoia of the Cold War.
