Description
Two manuscript versions of the book Toward a Livable World: Leo Szilard and the Crusade for Nuclear Arms Control (1987) prepared by Helen S. Hawkins and co-edited with G. Allen Greb and Gertrude Weiss Szilard. The early version (1974-1976) contains a larger volume of documents by Leo Szilard than the later condensed version. The materials follow a chronological sequence which dates from 1945 to 1964. Additional materials include videorecordings and cassette audiorecordings of interviews conducted by Helen Hawkins while at KPBS Public Television in San Diego, California.
