Letter from Salvador E. Luria to colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley
Description:
After joining the faculty of MIT, Luria became increasingly involved in American politics. Much of his involvement consisted of writing letters to newspaper editors and contributing to "open letter" advertisements. In this letter to members of the "Berkeley group," Luria requested that the recipients do their part in disseminating copies of an advertisement that ran in the "New York Times" on 21 August 1962. In the ad, hundreds of members of the Boston-area "Nuclear Policy Letter Committee" urged President Kennedy to renounce the first use of nuclear arms and to work with the Soviet Union to substantially reduce the number of nuclear weapons.
