Biographical note

Biography through 1983

Bernard Taub Feld, high-energy nuclear physicist and notable member of the international arms control and disarmament community, was born to Louis and Helen (Taub) Feld on December 21, 1919, in Brooklyn, New York. He received his elementary and secondary education in the Brooklyn public school system and in 1935, at age fifteen, entered the City College of New York. He began his undergraduate studies in history but changed his academic emphasis to physics and was graduated from CCNY in 1939 with the bachelor of science degree. His decision to study physics was influenced by Hyman H. Goldsmith, who later founded with Eugene Rabinowitch the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Manhattan Project

In 1939 Feld began graduate study at Columbia University and was later appointed teaching assistant to Isador I. Rabi and Enrico Fermi. Feld subsequently was given the opportunity to assist Fermi and Visiting Professor Leo Szilard in their efforts to produce a self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction. In 1941 Feld suspended his graduate studies in order to relocate to the University of Chicago where he continued his association with Szilard and Fermi. On December 2, 1942, the first controlled nuclear chain reaction was achieved at the University of Chicago's Metallurgical Laboratory. In 1943 Feld left Chicago for Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to participate in the design and construction of experimental atomic pile and separation facilities. Within the year, the Oak Ridge Laboratory had manufactured the first milligrams of plutonium from uranium. From Oak Ridge, Feld went to the Los Alamos Laboratory of the University of California and was Assistant Group Leader of Critical Assemblies from 1944 to 1946. At Los Alamos he contributed to the development of the experimental plutonium bomb that was later detonated in the desert at Alamogordo, New Mexico.

Teaching and Professional Activities

After receiving his doctorate from Columbia University, he was appointed instructor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1946. He was promoted to assistant professor in 1948, associate professor in 1952, and professor in 1955. He served as head of the physics department's Division of Nuclear and High-Energy Physics from 1975 to 1980.

During his career, Feld's work focused on experimental and theoretical research in high-energy nuclear physics, particularly theoretical interactions between fundamental particles. Among his significant scientific efforts was his contribution to the development of the Cambridge Electron Accelerator (CEA), a six-billion-electron-volt synchrotron, dedicated September 1962, and jointly owned and operated by MIT and Harvard University. Feld was one of six academic members of the CEA Executive Committee from 1961 to 1966. Among the responsibilities of the committee were the establishment of management policies and the approval of contractual arrangements. From 1961 to 1962 Feld was chairman of the Scientific Subcommittee which evaluated research programs and proposals.

Feld was also active in the administration of the MIT Laboratory of Nuclear Science (LNS), serving as acting director from 1961 to 1962 and member of the LNS Steering Committee from 1975 to 1982. He was committee chairman for the Conference on Photon Interactions of the BeV-Energy Range which was held at MIT on January 26-30, 1963. The international conference was attended by more than 300 physicists who met to discuss the use of high-energy accelerators in the study of atomic nuclei.

Throughout his career, Feld has been engaged as a consultant for governmental and industrial agencies and has served on several national scientific committees. His appointments have included the Committee on High Energy Physics, National Science Foundation, 1956-1960; Consultant to the Physics Department of the Brookhaven National Laboratory, 1947-; and Consultant in the field of theoretical physics, recombination, and magnetohydrodynamics with AVCO Manufacturing Corporation, Research and Development Division, Everett, Massachusetts, 1955-1965.

Outside of MIT he has taught at the University of Rome, where he was a Guggenheim Fellow and visiting professor from 1953 to 1955, and the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva, Switzerland, where he was a Ford Foundation Fellow and visiting scientist from 1960 to 1961. In 1966-1967 he was visiting professor at the École Polytechnique in Paris and research associate at the Centre de Recherche, Saclay, France. He also lectured at the Imperial College of Science and Technology in London, England, where he was visiting professor of theoretical physics from 1973 to 1975.

Feld has published extensively in professional journals (see Bibliography) and has written two books: Neutron Physics (published as Volume II,  Experimental Nuclear Physics, New York: Wiley and Sons, 1954) and  Models of Elementary Particles (Waltham, MA: Blaisdell Publishing Company, 1969). Since 1957 he has been an associate editor of  Annals of Physics, a journal presenting original work in all areas of basic physics research. He also was employed as consulting science editor for Blaisdell Publishing Company, a division of Random House, Inc., from 1960 to 1970. As science editor, he acted in an advisory and editorial capacity to develop a series of college level physics textbooks for the publisher.

Arms Control and Disarmament Activities

Feld began his study of arms control and disarmament following the nuclear attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In 1945, during the first six months of his appointment at MIT, he took a leave of absence to join a Washington, DC coalition of former Manhattan Project scientists opposed to military control over nuclear research and weapons development. Working with the Federation of American Scientists, BTF successfully lobbied against the War Department sponsored May-Johnson Bill and for passage of the McMahon Bill which established the civilian-controlled Atomic Energy Commission.

Continuing his association with the Federation of American Scientists, he was elected several times to the Council and served as vice-president from 1962 to 1963. He contributed numerous articles to the journal, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which was founded in 1946 to provide a forum in which members of the scientific community could discuss the social and political implications of their work. Feld was elected to serve on the  Bulletin's Board of Directors in 1968 and has been editor-in-chief since 1976.

With the advent of the Cold War, the need to re-establish a dialogue between the United States and the Soviet Union became imperative. In 1955 Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein appealed to the international scientific community to meet and discuss the issues created by the existence of nuclear weapons. After initial attempts by the Federation of American Scientists to re-establish East-West contact among scientists through written communication, a more effective exchange began in 1957 through the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. (For fuller explanation of the Pugwash movement see Historical note.)

In 1958, at Bertrand Russell's invitation, Feld began his association with the Pugwash Movement. He became increasingly involved through attending annual and semi-annual conferences and contributing to their organization. In 1963 the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) assumed the responsibility of coordinating American involvement in Pugwash activities through its Committee on Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs (P-COSWA). Feld, appointed committee chairman, received the mandate to arrange American participation in the International Pugwash Conferences, prepare American studies and activities relating to these conferences, and solicit financial support for Pugwash endeavors. Feld remained chairman of the Academy's Committee on P-COSWA until 1973.

He also served as one of three American representatives on the Pugwash Continuing Committee from 1966 to date. The Committee, incorporating members from the United States, the Soviet Union, Eastern and Western Europe, Asia, and Latin America, is responsible for the organization of the International Pugwash Conferences, publications, and maintaining contact with the National Pugwash Groups.

Feld was appointed secretary-general of Pugwash following the retirement of Joseph Rotblat in 1974. In this capacity, Feld not only served as head of the Pugwash organization but was responsible for the implementation of the decisions of the Continuing Committee. At the time of his appointment, Feld was on sabbatical leave at the Imperial College of Science and Technology in London. He maintained an office at the Pugwash headquarters in London until he had exhausted his leave from MIT. He temporarily relocated the Secretariat to his MIT office while he continued to serve as secretary-general until 1977.

The late 1950s and early 1960s witnessed the growth of arms control and national security studies in the United States. Members of the faculty at MIT and Harvard University were actively involved in the development of these fields, participating in innovative programs such as the 1960 American Academy of Arts and Sciences' Summer Study on Arms Control. In 1957 the Greater Boston Branch of the Federation of American Scientists had begun to investigate the technical problems of arms limitation. A year later, the AAAS Council voted to sponsor a project analyzing the problems of arms control and appointed the FAS Disarmament Study Group to act as an ad hoc Academy Committee.

As chairman of the FAS Group, Feld became head of the Academy's Committee on the Technical Problems of Arms Limitation and director of the Committee's 1960 Summer Study on Arms Control. Numerous publications were generated as a result of the Summer Study, attended by approximately fifty political, social, and physical scientists and engineers representing universities and research institutions from across the country. Feld wrote the Introduction to Arms Reduction: Program and Issues (David H. Frisch, ed., Twentieth Century Fund, NY, 1961), in which he described and analyzed the purpose and accomplishments of the Summer Study. He also contributed an article, "Inspection Techniques of Arms Control," to the Fall 1960 issue of the Academy's journal  Daedalus, "Arms Control and National Security," in which he discussed various types of inspection and surveillance techniques for controlled and prohibited military projects.

Concurrent with the above activities, Feld was involved in the administration of the Washington- based Council for a Livable World (CLW). Founded by Leo Szilard in 1961, the intent of the Council was to provide financial and intellectual support to United States senatorial candidates who were committed to the objective of nuclear arms control. Feld's administrative involvement with CLW began in 1962 when he was elected council president. He headed the Council until 1973 when he assumed the position of co-chairman and remained in that capacity until 1978. During Feld's eleven-year tenure as president, Senate candidates receiving CLW financial support included George McGovern (D., South Dakota), Walter Mondale (D., Minnesota), and Mark Hatfield (R., Oregon). Also during this period the Council, through its lobbying efforts, contributed to the postponement of congressional appropriations for the Sentinel anti-ballistic missile system, the prohibition of the use of biological weapons, and adoption of the partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963.

Other Activities

The Boston Area Faculty Group on Public Issues was founded in 1961 to provide a forum in which the local academic community could address significant public issues. Feld as a member of the Steering Committee participated in drafting an open letter, published in the New York Times, to President John F. Kennedy, communicating concern over the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. He also co-authored "An Answer to Teller," an article published in the April 14, 1962,  Saturday Evening Post responding to a series of articles written by nuclear physicist and disarmament opponent Edward Teller.

Other political groups with which Feld has been affiliated include the Task Force for the Nuclear Test Ban, the Educational Committee to Halt Atomic Weapons, the Universities National Anti- War Fund, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. The latter was the primary sponsoring organization for the MIT-initiated March 4, 1969, research stoppage protesting the United States involvement in the Vietnam conflict and the government's use of scientific and technological knowledge. As a senior faculty member, Feld participated in the organization of the March 4 activities and contributed to a panel discussion addressing the topic "Arms Control, Disarmament and Security." Nationally, between thirty and fifty universities stopped their scientific research and participated in public discussion of the relationship between science and government.

Feld has written and lectured extensively on the issue of arms limitation and edited two books addressing the issue of disarmament: Impact of New Technologies on the Arms Race (with T. Greenwood, G. W. Rathjens, and S. Weinberg, MIT Press, 1971) and  The Future of the Sea- Based Deterrent (with K. Tsipis and A. H. Cahn, MIT Press, 1973). He also published a collection of his papers entitled  A Voice Crying in the Wilderness: Essays on Science and World Affairs (Pergamon Press, 1979).

-----

Feld retired from MIT in 1990. He died on February 19, 1993, at the age of 73. MIT News Office obituary: http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/1993/feld-0224.html

Historical note

Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs - History through 1983

The decade following the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki witnessed the emergence of a nuclear arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union. In the environment of the Cold War, Bertrand Russell issued an appeal in 1955 to members of the international scientific community to "... assemble in conference to appraise the perils that have arisen as a result of the development of weapons of mass destruction..." Albert Einstein and nine other distinguished scientists joined with Russell in signing what became known as the Russell-Einstein Manifesto. With this initiative, a conference was planned, and financing was received from Cleveland industrialist Cyrus Eaton. The first conference was held at Eaton's estate in the small fishing village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia, July 7-10, 1957. The Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs have since been held at a variety of international locations on an annual and semi-annual basis. Members of the world scientific community gather in an unofficial capacity to discuss nuclear proliferation and propose measures by which the scientific community can influence governments in reaching international agreements limiting the accumulation and use of nuclear weapons. Since the late 1960s, topics discussed at the Pugwash Conferences have broadened to include environmental pollution, world overpopulation, the energy crisis, and problems of the developing nations.

The Pugwash organization is administered by the Pugwash Council (formerly known as the Pugwash Continuing Committee) whose members are elected by the participants of the International Conferences. A total of twenty-four individuals constitute the Committee: three Americans, three Soviets, five representatives from Third World nations, the two ex-secretary-generals, and the remainder from countries in Eastern and Western Europe. The committee is responsible for the organization of all international Pugwash activities and is headed by the Secretary-General, Dr. Martin M. Kaplan, who maintains offices in London and Geneva.

Since participation in the International Conferences is limited, regional groups have been established to provide a wider forum in which the scientific community can contribute to the discussion of the political, social, and moral implications of science and technology. Approximately thirty National Pugwash Groups are engaged in activities which range from routinely submitting participant nominations for the International Conferences to actively organizing and sponsoring symposia and regional conferences.

In the United States, the National Pugwash Group is under joint sponsorship of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. The activities of the American Pugwash Group are directed by the Committee on Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs (P-COSWA) of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. This committee, formed in 1963, is the successor of the Academy's Committee on the Public Responsibilities of Scientists. The American Pugwash Group is particularly active and, in addition to organizing American participation in the International Conferences, has organized several regional symposia and sponsored International Conferences held in the United States.

Additional information concerning the Pugwash Movement may be found in the following publications written by Joseph Rotblat, physicist, radiologist, and past secretary-general of Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs: Pugwash--A History of the Conferences on Science and World Affairs (Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, 1967) and  Scientists in the Quest for Peace--A History of the Pugwash Conferences (MIT Press, 1972).

 Series 2. Subject and Correspondence Files 1943-1973 

Scope and Contents note

This series documents Feld's arms control interests, consulting activities for the public and private sector, and teaching appointments outside of MIT. The bulk of the materials pertaining to the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs has been organized into a separate series (Series 4) although some correspondence and other items relating to Pugwash are scattered through the subject and correspondence files of Series 2.

Feld was a member of numerous political and professional organizations, often serving on committees and administrative boards; consequently his anti-war and disarmament activities are comprehensively documented through committee memoranda, meeting minutes, agendas, and correspondence. A notable example is Feld's more than twenty-five year affiliation with the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (boxes 1-5, folders 11-37). His activities as vice-president and member of the Academy's Council are reflected in executive committee agendas, published reports, ad hoc committee memoranda, and related materials. His chairmanship of the Committee on Technical Problems of Arms Limitation and Directorship of the committee's 1960 Summer Study on Arms Control are extensively documented through correspondence with participants, minutes of preliminary meetings, symposium agendas, and published studies (box 2-3, folders 12-20). Correspondence, proposals, and agendas of the Middle East Committee reflect Feld's involvement in the Academy's efforts to establish, in collaboration with the Government of Iran, an Arid Lands Institute to promote international cooperation for the scientific and technological development of the Middle East (box 3, folders 21-25). As a delegate of AAAS, Feld was sent to Teheran in 1972 to determine the level of interest in the Institute. A considerable amount of correspondence and related material reflects the negotiations between AAAS and the Office of the Prime Minister of Iran, and the eventual suspension of the project.

Feld's first article for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists was published January 1962. He subsequently contributed numerous articles and, after the death of  Bulletin co-founder Eugene Rabinowitch in 1973, frequently wrote guest editorials. Drafts and reprints of his articles appear in this section (box 10, folders 87-91) as well as in Series 5, Writings and Publications. Correspondence with Ruth Adams, managing editor of the Bulletin, documents the financial crisis which the journal experienced from 1963 to 1964 (box 10, folders 93-94).

Feld's association with the Council for a Livable World is illustrated by correspondence, publications, and financial statements spanning the period 1961 to 1976 (boxes 7-8, folders 60-79). The bulk of the materials reflects the years Feld was CLW president and ranges from correspondence to U. Thant, Acting Secretary General of the United Nations, urging him to personally intercede in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, to campaign literature soliciting support for CLW-endorsed senatorial candidates. The reaction of conservative journalists towards CLW objectives and fundraising methods is documented by newspaper clippings and editorials. By reason of his position as CLW president, Feld was named on President Richard M. Nixon's "Enemies List" presented to the 1973 Senate Watergate Committee (box 19, folder 186). A small amount of correspondence and journal articles reflects the controversy generated over CLW's alleged noncompliance with the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 regarding campaign finance disclosures in 1973-1974.

The Federation of American Scientists was Feld's introduction to political activism. A small amount of material documents Feld's early association with the Federation (oversize, box 56, folder 101); however, the bulk of the FAS papers, including Council minutes and Executive Committee memoranda, reflects his association from 1958 to 1971 (boxes 10-12, folders 87-100).

FAS related materials may also be found with the American Academy of Arts and Sciences files, particularly materials pertaining to the AAAS Committee on Technical Problems of Arms Limitation.

Feld's employment with the Manhattan Project is not documented except for mimeographed lectures on nuclear physics presented at the "Los Alamos University" (box 14, folders 126-130). These lectures offer some indication of the scientific exchange that occured at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and include a course on neutron physics taught by Enrico Fermi.

Further documentation of Feld's antiwar activities is revealed in his association with the Union of Concerned Scientists (box 18, folders 177-178). Materials for public distribution, petitions, and correspondence illustrate the cooperative efforts of UCS and the Science Action Co-ordinating Committee (SACC), an MIT student political organization, to organize activities relating to the March 4, 1969, research stoppage. Of additional interest is correspondence from MIT faculty opposed to the strike, expressing fear that the action would adversely affect government sponsored research at the Institute, and Feld's proposal to speak before the MIT Review Panel on Special Laboratories ("Pounds Panel").

 Series 3. Teaching Materials and MIT Records 1947-1974 

Scope and Contents note

The series contains correspondence, published reports, computations, proposals, photographs, conference proceedings, lecture notes, budget reports, student projects, and departmental memoranda relating to teaching and research activities.

Feld's interest in arms control extended into his academic activities at MIT. Correspondence with MIT President Jerome Wiesner and other interested parties in 1969 reflects Feld's role in the establishment of the interdepartmental Undergraduate Policy Seminars ( Arms Control Studies, box 20, folders 194-195). Under the directorship of Feld, Physics 8.19 traced the development of nuclear weapons from both technical and political perspectives and is richly documented through syllabi, student papers, and interdepartmental memoranda (boxes 27-28, folders 270-271).

Other subjects of interest include "Lives of Great Men Remind Us...," an assemblage of photographs of twentieth-century scientists used by Feld to acquaint his students with the history of contemporary physics (box 26, folder 250); physics course outlines, prepared by Feld during the years 1945 to 1973, documenting his teaching activities at MIT (boxes 27-29, folders 257-294); and research progress reports and correspondence reflecting Feld's role as thesis advisor to physics graduate students during the years 1954 to 1974 (box 30, folders 298-300). Feld's involvement in the divestiture controversy, the MIT Review Panel on Special Laboratories, is reflected in the section on Union of Concerned Scientists (box 18, folders 177- 178).

Access note

In accordance with MIT policy, there may be restrictions on access to MIT records.

 Series 4. Pugwash Movement Materials 1958-1976 

Scope and Contents note

The files of the annual and semi-annual Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs are arranged chronologically under the subject "conferences" and are a nearly complete record of activities from 1950 to 1976. Materials include proceedings, Working Group agendas and reports, prepared papers, and correspondence between Feld, Continuing, and P-COSWA Committee members, conference participants, and other interested individuals.

The 5.5 cubic feet of Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs (boxes 30-48) offer extensive documentation of American involvement in Pugwash activities and specifically Feld's participation on two key committees: the American Academy of Arts and Sciences Committee on Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs (P-COSWA) and the Pugwash International Continuing Committee. Committee agendas, annual reports, and correspondence reflect Feld's ten-year appointment as chairman of the Academy's Committee on P-COSWA and offer thorough documentation of the committee's internal organization and association with the national and international Pugwash community. A synopsis of Pugwash activities may be found in annual reports written by Feld to the AAAS Council and memoranda to the Academy's Committee on P-COSWA delineating recent Continuing Committee decisions (boxes 30-31, folders 304-310).

Feld's participation as a representative on the International Continuing Committee is reflected in agendas and minutes of the planning sessions, statements issued by the Committee addressing special topics such as the 1957 public statement on the Non-Proliferation Treaty, memoranda to the AAAS Committee on P-COSWA, and official statements issued at the conclusion of annual conferences (boxes 31-32, folders 313-319). Considerable correspondence exists between Joseph Rotblat, Secretary-General of Pugwash, 1957-1974, and Feld concerning the selection of conference participants, fundraising, and conference organization. Other correspondence with Rotblat is located in box 40, folders 412-417. Note: correspondence relating to the activities of the AAAS Committee on P-COSWA and the Continuing Committee can be found filed within the Pugwash Conferences section (boxes 32-38, folders 320-382) and also by individual correspondent in the Correspondence section (boxes 38-41, folders 383-428).

For the Twentieth Pugwash Conference, "Peace and International Cooperation: A Program for the Seventies," the Committee on P-COSWA introduced an innovative proposal to include students who had exhibited a professional interest in arms control. Twenty-two student participants were invited to attend the plenary sessions and contribute to the discussions of the Working Groups (box 36, folder 364). Documentation on the Twentieth Conference, sponsored by the American Pugivash Group, includes correspondence with student participants, minutes of preliminary meetings, and extensive correspondence outlining the planning process of both pre- and post-conference activities (box 36, folders 358-365).

The same year, the Committee on P-COSWA organized the Tenth International Pugwash Symposium, "The Impact of New Technologies on the Arms Race." Documentation of this symposium is sparse; relevant memoranda are filed with 1970 P-COSWA material (box 31, folder 308 ). Feld's involvement with the follow-up study group, examining the viability of a submarine-launched ballistic missile system, and his appointment to the Steering Committee, charged with commissioning and writing analyses of submarine-based deterrent forces, are comprehensively documented through correspondence, memoranda, meeting minutes, and drafts of reports, including Feld's co-authored paper, "Anti-Submarine Warfare and Arms Control." These papers were subsequently presented in 1972 at the symposium, "The Future of the Sea-based Deterrent" (box 46, folders 503-508) and published as a monograph by the MIT Press in 1973. The monograph is available at the MIT Institute Archives.

Financial support for the American Pugwash program is received from several sources including foundations and past participants of Pugwash conferences and symposia. Approximately one cubic foot of correspondence documents fund-raising efforts during the period 1962 to 1973 (boxes 41-43, folders 429-478 ). Correspondence and confidential notes written by Feld for his personal file reflect the financial conflict that developed between the AAAS Committee on Soviet American Disarmament Studies (SADS), and the Committee on P-COSWA. Major funding from the Ford Foundation was received for SADS development, prompting Feld to express concern that the importance of SADS would eclipse P-COSWA's influence as an international forum for disarmament advocacy (box 46, folder 495).

The Stockholm International Peach Research Institute (SIPRI) includes correspondence between SIPRI staff researcher Milton Leitenburg and Feld. The papers reflect the collaborative efforts of SIPRI and the Pugwash Study Group on Biological Warfare and the Institute's contribution to International Pugwash Conferences (box 46, folders 499-500).

 Series 5. Writings and Publications 

Scope and Contents note

This series contains reprints of articles published in technical and political journals and popular magazines, book reviews, lectures, unpublished articles, letters to the editor, guest editorials, and correspondence related to these materials.

Feld's scientific research is reflected in the approximately 100 technical articles he has published since 1945, and they document his interest in atomic and molecular fine and hyperfine structures and the application of the quark model to the understanding of the electromagnetic properties of strongly interacting particles. Of interest in his political writings is "Reflections on Three Revolutions--or La Chie-En-Lit, Oui!", an account written immediately following Feld's observation of the student uprisings in Czechoslovakia and France in May 1968. Included here are photographs taken by Feld and originally organized with his written impressions in a 3-ring binder (box 49, folder 534). The account was subsequently published in Technology Review as "Scientists and Students in Europe: A Report from Prague and Paris" in January 1969. Also of interest is "An Answer to Teller," (box 49, folders S31-532) which includes correspondence between Feld and the  Saturday Evening Post, annotated galley prints, and public reaction to the articles.
