Professor Robert H. "Pete" Bragg came to UC Berkeley in 1969 from the private sector to serve as professor of Material Science and Mineral Engineering, one of six African American faculty on campus. His major areas of research were x-ray physics and applications to research on materials, electronic properties of carbon materials, and the mechanism of graphitization. This interview follows his trajectory from his early life in Tennessee and Chicago, through military service, graduate school and early professional experiences in the private sector, and finally, on to Berkeley.
