    NDRC History
    Bush and his colleagues recognized that the international situation required that NDRC draw upon existing laboratories, private and public. NDRC questioned the Army and Navy on their current research and needs. NDRC also wrote to 725 colleges and universities nationwide to obtain information about their staffs and facilities that might be used for military research.
