A teen during World War II, Ms. Del Grande developed a passion for science after learning about the Manhattan Project and seeing her father consult for the United States military. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in physics from Mount Holyoke College and a Master of Science in physics from Stanford University and began her career as a physicist for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 1959. Among other accomplishments, Ms. Del Grande was the first female physicist to design and test a major nuclear device diagnostic experiment and holds several patents for thermal imaging technologies. Ms. Del Grande has written and lectured extensively, attended several United Nations symposia, and was a United Nations appointee to the University of Mexico. She remained a senior physicist with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory until 1999, and her work influenced DARPA project allocation as well as civilian research and development. She credits her success to curiosity, a love for her field, and a desire to serve her country.
