DEDICATION by Dr. Robert A. Frosch to Dr. William B. McLean I dedicate this Charles H. Davis Lecture to the memory of the late Bill McLean, inventor of the Sidewinder missile, technical director of the Naval Ordnance Test Station, now the Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, California, and later of the Naval Undersea Center, San Diego, California. Bill was an inspired technologist and innovator, one of the earliest advocates of, and experimenters with, the human extension ideas that I will discuss today. 11
