Abstract:

The collection provides an in-depth look at the founding, history, activities and correspondence of the Society for Social Responsibility in Science. Included are minutes of council and annual meetings from the year before its inception in 1949 and until its culmination in ca. 1976. There is extensive correspondence of officers, especially Victor Paschkis, Franklin Miller and Otto Theodor (Ted) Benfey, but also of other officers, such as Herbert Jehle, Theodore Hetzel, Truman Kirkpatrick, Jane Oesterling and Edward Ramberg, often discussing what the core or nature of the organization should be. Probably the most stellar correspondent who also became a member of SSRS is Albert Einstein writing in 1950 on his involvement with atomic weapons as theoretical, rather than practical, and his decision not to be involved in war work. Other important scientists or others who were correspondents are: Emily Greene Balch, Hans Bethe, Max Born, Anton Carlson, Aldous Huxley, Kathleen Lonsdale, Samuel Marble, A.J. Muste, Shigeru Oae, Priyadaranjan Ray, Dorothy Thompson, Gilbert White and Norman Whitney. One of the primary topics, not only in the correspondence, but across the various efforts of the organization was how to attract and keep members. Toward this end, SSRS published a monthly newsletter, and all the extant copies of the SSRS newsletter from 1949 to 1974 have been assembled here.
