The "Present" is 1936 - Raymond Massey plays a man with a far-seeing spirit, aware of what effects a war will have and talking in oratory tones to his friends and family.

In 1936, science journalist Frank Thone declared to members of the American Association for Adult Education that their fellow citizens were "as eager as St. Paul’s Athenians to hear some new thing" about science but they preferred flexibility to pontification.[1] His explication foreshadowed today’s world of ubiquitous, portable communications devices:
That staff included many pioneers in science journalism, including some of the first female science journalists in the United States.[22] Many were among the founders of the National Association of Science Writers in 1934.
Almost all Science Service writers had some type of technical training; a few, like Thone, had graduate training but had abandoned full-time research and teaching for a career in journalism.[23] These intermediaries were familiar with scientific organizations, universities, and science-based industries.

 Turing in the philosophy of science - Andrew Hodges
Turing's 1936 definition of computability remains a classic paper in the elucidation of an abstract concept into a new paradigm.
Detached from social and economic motivations, and perceived as an eccentric, apolitical, unworldly innocent, he was swept into a central position in history as the chief scientific figure in the Anglo-American mastery of German communications.
One of many ironies of Turing's life, lived for science, was that he suffered in 1952-53 a 'scientific' treatment by oestrogen supposed to negate his homosexuality.

The order authorized the SAB for a two- year period, during which time the NRC was granted the authority to appoint committees within the SAB to address scientific problems of the various government departments.
Unlike the Research Council, which had come to be organized around specific fields of science and technology, the SAB's organization was explicitly designed around its relationship with the government.
Accordingly, the SAB's first undertaking was a survey of the overall relationship between science and the government.

 Williams College History of Science Department: Department
No major in the history of science was envisioned, because the history of science is interdisciplinary, and for its study beyond an introductory level ideally requires some depth of knowledge in either science or history, knowledge not usually acquired until the junior and senior years.
The Department's singular position as staffed by one person resulted from a desire not to have history of science limited by its location in either departments of science or of history; fortunately Williams had a history of one-person departments, most notably in astronomy.
His primary research interests in the history of science lie in the social relations of science, although he has also been active in scientometrics.
