Protestors and their banner at the March 1977 National Academy of Sciences Forum on Recombinant DNA
Date:
[7-9 March 1977]
Description:
As a follow-up to the Asilomar Conference of February 1975, the National Academy of Sciences convened a forum in March 1977 in Washington, DC to bring the scientific community and all interested parties together to discuss the merits and dangers of recombinant DNA research. This image shows protestors in front of the Academy's panel (which included Singer, Paul Berg, and NIH Director Donald Fredrickson) holding a sign quoting Adolf Hitler, "We will create the perfect race."
