This book contains biographical sketches of 100 of the most prominent and interesting American scientists of the twentieth century. We chose this group to profile because their struggles, early decisions, concerns, dilemmas, course selections, post-graduate options, and advice will be more relevant to modern teens than would be life histories of scientists from more distant places and times. Our focus in compiling these profiles was not simply to highlight their major achievements, but rather to document the trail they carved out in getting to a position of prominence
