President Bush has selected a nationally renowned nuclear physicist from Yale University, D. Allan Bromley, as White House science adviser, senior Administration officials said Wednesday. "This is a great appointment," said Leon Lederman, director of the Fermilab accelerator near Chicago and a Nobel laureate who has known Bromley for decades. "He has the respect of the scientific community. He is vigorous and lively and he will be a wise voice on difficult issues. Of course, a lot depends upon the chemistry between him and the President."
