David L. Bergman grew up and worked on the Bergman Farm and Dairy established and operated by his grandfather, father, and uncles near Tulare, California. He excelled in high school academics, especially math and science, earned a BA in Physics at UC Berkeley in 1961, and an MSEE at UC Santa Barbara in 1967, after commencing his career.
After two years with Boeing Airplane Co. in Seattle, Bergman in 1963 began his 30-year career as a civilian Electrical Engineer working on military systems for the US Navy and Air Force. His engineering expertise and leadership produced electronic circuits when transistors first became available, radar guided missiles, and other major weapons. The technical lessons learned in making electrical systems work gave him extensive insight into the nature and fundamental processes of the real world, paving the way for success in his post-employment career in fundamental physics.
In 1980, he recognized the electrical character of natural phenomena and began active research on elementary particles. In 1990, he published his first paper on the electron in Galilean Electrodyamics. About this time he met Dr. Charles Lucas, whose research had led him to similar conclusions. In 1997, Bergman founded Common Sense Science, Inc., a non-profit corporation providing research and education in fundamental physics. Serving as president, he also writes and publishes the organization's quarterly journal, Foundations of Science, avidly read by hundreds of scientists and laymen around the world.
He married in 1968 and has two children living near him in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. In 2002, he married again, having one son by his new wife from the Philippines. Retired from engineering duties, he spends his time with family, church activities, science research, science conferences, and various publications.
