Biographical Sketches for Committee Members

Robert W. Fri, Chair, is a visiting scholar and senior fellow emeritus at Resources for the Future, where he served as president from 1986 to 1995. From 1996 to 2001 he served as director of the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution. Before joining the Smithsonian, Mr. Fri served in both the public and private sectors, specializing in energy and environmental issues. In 1971 he became the first deputy administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In 1975, President Ford appointed him as the deputy administrator of the Energy Research and Development Administration. He served as acting administrator of both agencies for extended periods. From 1978 to 1986, Mr. Fri headed his own company, Energy Transition Corporation. He began his career with McKinsey & Company, where he was elected a principal. Mr. Fri is a senior advisor to private, public, and nonprofit organizations. He is a director of the American Electric Power Company and of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and a trustee of Science Service, Inc. (publisher of Science News and organizer of the Intel Science Talent Search and International Science and Engineering Fair). He serves as vice-chair of the boards of EPRI and of Science Service. He is a member of the National Petroleum Council, the Advisory Council of the Marian E. Koshland Science Museum, and the steering committee of the Energy Future Coalition. In past years, he has been a member of the President’s Commission on Environmental Quality, the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board, and the University of Chicago board of governors for Argonne National Laboratory. He has chaired advisory committees of the National Research Council (NRC), the Carnegie Commission on Science, Technology and Government, EPRI, and the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA). From 1978 to 1995 he was a director of Transco Energy Company, where he served as chair of the audit, compensation, and chief executive search committees. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi and a national associate of the National Academy of Sciences. He received a B.A. in physics from Rice University and an M.B.A. (with distinction) from Harvard University.


R. Stephen Berry (NAS) is the James Franck Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Chicago and holds appointments in the College, the James Franck Institute, and the Department of Chemistry. He was special advisor to the director of Argonne National Laboratory for National Security. Dr. Berry has also held an appointment in the School of Public Policy Studies at the university and has worked on a variety of subjects ranging from strictly scientific matters to a variety of topics in policy. He has held a number of positions including visiting professor at the University of Copenhagen (1967 and 1979), the Université de Paris-Sud (1979-1980), and Oxford University (1973-1974, 1980), where he was the Newton-Abraham Professor in 1986-1987. He spent 1994 at the Freie Universität Berlin as an awardee of the Humboldt Prize. He has continued to have close associations with the Aspen Center for Physics (board of directors, 1978-1984) and with the Telluride Summer Research Center (now Telluride Science Research Center) (board of directors, 1984-present; president, 1989-1993). In 1983 Dr. Berry was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. In 1997, he received the Heyrovsky Medal of the Czech Academy of Sciences. He has also worked since the mid-1970s with issues of science and the law, and with the management of scientific data, activities that have brought him into the arena of electronic media for scientific information and issues of intellectual property in that context. He has also worked on matters of scientific ethics and on some aspects of national security. Dr. Berry’s current scientific interests include the dynamics of atomic and molecular clusters, the basis of guided protein folding and other structure-seeking processes, and the thermodynamics of time-constrained processes and the efficient use of energy. He attended Harvard University, where he received A.B., A.M., and Ph.D. degrees.
