Records of the Science and Government Program of the Caltech Humanities Division, sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation, 1960-1966.
The program consisted of a series of seminars on arms control. Speakers from government (domestic and foreign), the military,
and from the sciences and humanities were brought together. UCLA participated in the program beginning in the second year.
In 1960 the Carnegie Corporation gave a substantial grant to Caltech's Humanities Division to support a program on "Science
and Government." The decision was made to focus the program on arms control, and by the summer of 1960, the first session
of "preliminary" seminars was underway. The program lasted five to six years.
