Born in Poland in 1918, Edward Rozek fought first for Poland and then for the Polish Tenth Armoured Brigade during World War
II. Following the war, Rozek moved to the United States in 1948 and attended Harvard University, where he earned his BA, MA,
and PhD. After graduating, Rozek accepted a position at the University of Colorado, where he remained a professor for his
entire academic career. At the University of Colorado, Rozek founded and directed both the Edward Teller Center (later renamed
the Center for Science, Technology and Political Thought) and the Institute for the Study of Economic and Political Freedom.
