Paper Abstract

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Optical Sciences Center, we recall the times when this event took place. We review historical conditions both in Arizona and in science evolution at the University of Arizona and in the USA. We concentrate on the period when Professor Franken was the director of the center. His objective was to consolidate the Center and align it closely with the University standards and procedures. The fact that within the past decade this entity has become a University of Arizona College bears witness to the fact that Dr. Franken succeeded in this task.
