Short biography
C.P. Snow was an unusual combination of physicist and novelist who also held several important positions in the British government.  His celebrated 1959 lecture at Cambridge University, "The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution," with its theme of a dangerous gap that had opened between scientists and "literary intellectuals" began a public debate that's still going on.
