Detlev Wulf Bronk (August 13, 1897 – November, 1975) was President of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland from 1949 to 1953 and President of the National Academy of Sciences from 1950 to 1962. (prior to that, he was Chairman of the National Research Council) From 1953-1968 Detlev Bronk was president of Rockefeller University (previously Rockefeller Institute for Medical Science and renamed Rockefeller University during his presidency). He firmly believed in academic freedom and resisted vigorously an attempt by Wisconsin Sen. Joseph McCarthy to have Hopkins dismiss Professor Owen Lattimore. He was credited with formulating the modern theory of the science of biophysics. Detlev was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Lyndon B. Johnson on September 14, 1964. He was also a member of the National Aeronautics and Space council and he was a winner of an Atoms for Peace Award. He was a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Brookhaven National Laboratories. He was one of the founders (1960) and President of the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS). He was an advisory member of the Atomic Energy Commission. Bronk is credited with reshaping the postwar university environment at Hopkins. While at Hopkins, he tried unsuccessfully to revive the "Goodnow Plan" but succeeded in acquiring the School of Advanced International Studies in Washington. Quote by Detlev: "A great deal of undergraduate education is built on ... telling a student what to do—at the very time he is developing intellectual habits for life. Too rarely is a student told, 'This is the problem with which we are going to deal. Here are the books.' "

== Conspiracy theories ==The "Eisenhower Briefing Document" identifies Bronk as a member of the Majestic 12 Group and involved with conducting alien autopsies and creating a breed of Humans that contain partial DNA from the Aliens. Excerpts follow - According to the "Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit Summary, Intelligence Assessment": "…As to the bodies…it appears that none of the five crew members survived entry into our atmosphere due to unknown causes. Dr. Detlev Bronk has been asked to assist in the autopsy of one well preserved cadaver to be done by Major Charles E. Rea." Detlev coined the term EBE for ET. While Detlev is known to have been a compulsive diarist, his diaries for the year 1947 have been removed and are noted as missing from his archives. Detlev is reported to have brokered and signed a peace treaty with an Alien group in 1966.
