Alphonse Francesco Forziati

After graduating from Harvard University with BA, MA and PhD degrees in physics and chemistry, Dr. Alphonse Francesco Forziati went to Washington, D.C. to become part of the staff at the National Bureau of Standards involved in the World War II and later defense programs. Following that, he was in charge of the research team in the Department of Defense's Advanced Research Projects Agency for the development of portable electric power systems, focusing on fuel cells, thermo-electric and photo-electric generators, as well as remote sensing (target detection and identification), and special equipment needed during the Vietnam war. In 1970, Dr. Forziati became the Assistant Director for Physical Sciences Research at the Environmental Protection Agency, and later became the Director of Inadvertent Modification of the Stratosphere Research, or the ozone problem, and retired in 1980.
