    Mid-Nineteenth-Century American Astronomy: Science in a Developing Nation.Norriss S. Hetherington - 1983 - Annals of Science 40 (1):61-80.
    Many mid-nineteenth-century American astronomers who added little or nothing to the advancement of knowledge nevertheless merit attention for their efforts to advance science in a developing nation. They wrote needed textbooks, developed scientific exchanges, and attempted, not always with lasting success, to establish scientific institutions. O. M. Mitchel's trials with the Cincinnati Observatory and his journal The Sidereal Messenger are more sympathetically understood in the context of science in a developing nation than as scientific research. The theme of science in (...)

    Cleveland Abbe and a View of Science in Mid-Nineteenth-Century America.Norriss S. Hetherington - 1976 - Annals of Science 33 (1):31-49.
    By the middle of the nineteenth century science was developing into a profession demanding advanced training and devotion to research. American institutions, however, were still better suited to an earlier stage of popular science. Many of the difficulties and frustrations for would-be scientists created by the time lag in institutional change are illustrated in the career of Cleveland Abbe. In the fifteen years between 1856 and 1871 his attempts to become an astronomer touched upon many significant aspects of American science (...)

    Air Power and Governmental Support for Scientific Research: The Approach to the Second World War. [REVIEW]Norriss S. Hetherington - 1991 - Minerva 29 (4):420-439.
    The development of radar, jet propulsion, ballistic missiles and the atomic bomb during the Second World War established and made visible to an unprecedented degree governmentally supported and directed research and development. National survival was now seen to depend on the mobilisation of a country's talents and resources in science and technology for military purposes.Prior to the Second World War, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics had established its own role in research. It also established the legitimacy of governmental patronage (...)
