An extremely rare xeroxed illustrated publication on the involvement of the Slovenian immigrants in the science and culture in the US was published by the Slovenian research center of America. The text, accompanied by photographs, represents men and women, who immigrated from Slovenian to the US and achieved notable places in the science, starting with Fritz Pregl, wo received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1923, and Dr. Edward Rupnik, a Rear Admiral in the medical corps of the US Navy and a later professor of medicine the Georgetown University.
The text is one of the rare first-hand contemporary reports on the Slovenian scientists and authors in the US.
The three accompanying newsletters offer additional information on the contemporary life within the Slovenian community in the US.
