Abstract: Since the advent of time there have been leaders of men, but never before has there been a more critical need for leadership in human and scientific affairs than today. The cave men had their leaders; so did the earliest of barbarian tribes, states, and nations. Down through the pages of history some man has been a leader and his followers have devotedly admired his ability and followed his leadership. These leaders have led their groups either in desirable ways or in undesirable ways. Those leading in the desired directions have become great, have gone down in the pages of history as worthy members of society, and have been used as a pattern for the lives and character of others. Never before in the history of mankind has there been so great a demand for leaders. Leaders who will set the pace, set the die, and set the patterns for others to follow.
