The article explores the life and works of botanist Joseph Rock, historian Joseph Needham, and physicist J. C. Bose. Rock's expeditions and personality have become an enduring part of China's history which shows the notion that scientists participate in public affairs. Needham has embraced the documentation of the country's history of science and technology. Bose's infusion of three careers shows the notion that science is a blend of logic and imagination.
