Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: relates to BBAPKQ, Carl Shy => JL  6/13/75; manifesto
on world problems; In response to my email 9/99, Prof. Clinton
(now at Oregon State University) responded:
" we did not hear from Professor
Tatum before his death on 5 November 1975.  In all, we heard from
only 30 Laureates, which did not seem a high enough proportion to
warrant publication of the book.  We did, however, place several of
the pieces offered to us in periodical publications.

"In light of the mainstream media's resounding neglect of the
Scientists' Warning to Humanity in November of 1992, signed I
believe by some 1600 of the world's greatest scientists,  it is
intriguing to speculate on what the reaction might have been to our
early, and unfortunately aborted, effort."
