William T. Golden served as Treasurer of AAAS from 1969 to 1999. In the early 1950s, he advised President Truman on the organization of scientific research and development throughout the government. Golden's memoranda from this period reflect an important episode in the history of American science policy after the second world war. This AAAS Archives special exhibit includes an online text on the significance of Golden's efforts and a searchable database of over 200 documents.
