Cornell University Library Digitizes Collection of Nuclear Freeze Materials
From Cornell University:
Recently, Cornell University Library has launched an online selection of recorded and written speeches, testimonies, and correspondence by [Randall] Forsberg, who was a leader of the international Nuclear Freeze movement and the founder and director of the Boston-based Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies (IDDS).
Titled Randall Forsberg and the Nuclear Freeze Movement: Selected Materials from the Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies Archive, the collection is the culmination of a project led by Matthew Evangelista, professor of government; Agnieszka Nimark, visiting scholar at the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies; and Judith Reppy, professor emerita in the Department of Science and Technology Studies. The library’s Grants Program for Digital Collections in Arts and Sciences provided funding along with curatorial and digitization support.
Nimark explained that the online collection is but a sampling of the expansive physical IDDS archive – which includes the institute’s publications such as the Arms Control Reporter, the World Weapon Database, and the Peace Resource Book – physically available at the library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections
