David Bohm (1917--1992). A close colleague of Einstein's at Princeton University after World War II, Bohm would himself go on to become one of the great physicists of the twentieth century. Persecuted for his radical politics during the era of the McCarthy hearings, he left the US in 1952 to teach first in Brazil and then in the UK. Popular Science/Physics/Philosophy
