Melvin Kranzberg, however, accomplished much more. By the time of his death at the age of 78 in December 1995, he had almost singlehandedly created and nurtured a flourishing field of scholarship and teaching: the history of technology. As he readily conceded, he did not work alone. Meanwhile Technology and Culture became an international journal with a growing influence and readership. In passages of his book rarely cited he acknowledged that scientists can be as patronizing toward engineers and other technical experts as any self-proclaimed humanists can be.
