To figure out what caused the massive decline,people.my life, and his passion for a science policy that was in complete synch with the Administration,C. works He won worldwide respect for what Ray Bye a retired university administrator who led NSF’s congressional affairs shop under Bloch calls “his willingness to listen his direct and often penetrating rebuttal to questions and his unquestioned honesty and integrity” “Everything he did could be called significant” says Mary Clutter a retired career NSF-er whom Bloch chose as his senior science adviser and later promoted to head the agency’s biology directorate “His contributions changed thousands of lives including mine” Bell had left DEC when Bloch reached out to him to stand up a new computing directorate It combined existing programs—hardware systems from engineering information sciences from economics and traditional computer science from the mathematics division—as well as NSF’s fledgling efforts in networking that would lead to the modern internet “Try as we might there was fierce competition for funding between the supercomputing centers and those doing traditional computer science research who weren’t much interested in networks” Bell says The new directorate eventually also spawned the field of computational science he adds “but it took 20 years for that to happen” The importance of elevating computing within the scientific hierarchy at NSF should have been obvious Bell says “But if Erich hadn’t been there it would have been another decade before computing got to this point” Center-based science Another idea that Bloch felt was long overdue was creating a network of large interdisciplinary research centers at universities that would combine training and education A year before coming to NSF Bloch had served on a National Academy of Engineering committee that offered NSF guidance on creating engineering research centers (ERCs) And the first six centers were funded shortly after he arrived at NSF The approach was initially resisted by many academics They feared the centers would siphon money from bread-and-butter research grants and were dubious of what they saw as industrial-scale science—antithetical to the traditional model of having a single investigator direct a few graduate students But Bloch was able to prevail with help from Keyworth and NSF’s governing body the National Science Board The ERC program grew rapidly and it was soon followed by its larger cousin the Science and Technology Centers that funded similar work in all fields that NSF supported Former NSF Director Neal Lane had those battles in mind when he said of Bloch "Not everyone agreed with Erich on everything he did as NSF director But in my view he transformed NSF and to a large extent American science mathematics and engineering research and education in ways that have proved to be lasting and vital to the advancement of science and technology in this country” Stumbling over a shortfall Bloch’s firm belief in the direction that US science needed to take helped him overcome many obstacles In an interview for an academic study on the history of the ERCs Bloch was asked about complaints from center directors that NSF had set the bar too high His reply was typically blunt: “Life is tough” But that self-assurance could also be a liability Perhaps the most notable example was a 1987 study by his policy shop on whether the country was training enough scientists and engineers to meet the nation’s needs The study using historically high PhD production rates in the mid-1980s as a baseline predicted a massive shortfall beginning in the late 1980s and continuing for several years The unspoken political message was clear: The United States is running out of scientists so the budgets of NSF and other science agencies needed to grow Many labor economists criticized the analysis as simplistic however and noted that the absence of any estimate of future demand—always a tricky business—made its projections worthless Bloch was always careful to use the word “shortfall” rather than “shortage” But such semantic distinctions weren’t enough to ward off a congressional inquiry begun after Bloch had left which temporarily damaged the agency’s sterling reputation (NSF directors are given a 6-year term and President George HW Bush did not renew Bloch’s appointment after taking office) In a tacit acknowledgement that the study was seriously flawed Bloch’s successor ordered up a new study of the growing number of PhD scientists who were unable to find jobs in their fields Bloch never admitted that NSF had stubbed its toe however and remained combative on the topic In a 1992 note to the chair of the congressional committee that led the inquiry for example Bloch complained about not being invited to testify and then implied that the legislator was simply seeking publicity by holding the hearing “Members of Congress lawyers and MBAs are not going to improve our competitive standing in the world” Bloch wrote to Representative Howard Wolpe (D–MI) “Scientists and engineers just might” But Bloch’s legion of admirers greatly outnumbered his detractors And his death last week gives them one last chance to express their gratitude to someone who came to the United States as a young man after being orphaned by the Holocaust and shared his formidable talents with his adopted country “Erich was an extraordinary man” Clutter says “He promised me that we could change the world And he was right as usual” Adds Keyworth “Erich made his new country just a bit better than it would have been without him” the ‘Maturitas’ journal reported.
