John Kenneth Hulm, chief scientist emeritus at the Westinghouse Electric Corp., has been appointed to the U.S.-Japan Joint High Level Advisory Panel by Allan Bromley, the president's assistant for science and technology. The advisory panel is composed of 20 distinguished U.S. and Japanese scientists and engineers from industry and academia. Formed in 1988, the panel provides advice to both governments on their science and technology relationship. Hulm, a physicist who is internationally recognized as an authority on superconductivity, retired as chief scientist from the Westinghouse Science & Technology Center two years ago. As chief scientist, he was responsible for the planning, development, and funding of the company's scientific programs. A native of England, Hulm earned his Ph.D. in physics in 1949. He was research fellow and professor at the University of Chicago before coming to Westinghouse in 1954.
