Edward E. David served in the Nixon Administration as Science Advisor to the President, Director of the Office of Science and Technology, Chairman of the Federal Council for Science and Technology, and Chairman of the President’s Science Advisory Committee. These files reflect David’s responsibilities in assisting in the reorganization of the Federal government’s scientific complex, the initiation of reciprocal research agreements with several countries, the reestablishment of a technological partnership between the government and private industry, increasing the Federal science budget, and the application of esoteric research techniques to such problems as food production, mass transit, and the conservation of natural resources.
