Biographical Note

Eugene I. Rabinowitch was born in St. Petersburg in April 1901. He left the Soviet Union in 1918 to study at the University of Berlin, where he received his doctoral degree in chemistry in 1926 with a thesis entitled “Tin Hydridge and Volatile Hydrides.” As a former Russian citizen, he found it difficult to gain an academic position, but with the publication of his book Rare Gases he became a research fellow at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry in Berlin. Later he transferred to the University of Gottingen and joined Professor James Franck.

When his fellowship was suspended in 1933, Rabinowitch joined the stream of eminent refugees fleeing Germany. Professor Neils Bohr invited him to Copenhagen. He spent a year there before moving on to the University College, London, where F. G. Donnan invited him to work as a Research Associate. He remained in England for four years.

Rabinowitch married his wife, Anya Mejerson, on March 12, 1932. While the family was in London, his twin sons, Alexander and Victor, were born on August 30, 1934.

While lecturing in the United States in 1938, he accepted a position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with the Cabot Solar Energy Research Project. In the spring of 1944 he took a leave of absence from M. I. T. to join the Manhattan Project. At the Project’s Metallurgical Laboratory in Chicago he was chief chemist and section chief in the information division. “My work there,” Rabinowitch wrote in 1959, “had to do with the exchange and coordination of information between Chicago, Oak Ridge, Hanford and Los Alamos.”

Rabinowitch was concerned about the repercussions of the release of atomic energy. In June 1945, with a group including Szilard, Seaborg, and Nickson led by James Franck at the Metallurgical Laboratory, Rabinowitch helped draft a report addressed to the Secretary of War, which warned of an impending nuclear arms race without effective international control.

The same year, with a fellow alumnus of the Chicago Laboratory, Hyman Goldsmith, Rabinowitch founded the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. After Goldsmith’s death in 1949 Rabinowitch assumed the responsibilities of the editor-in-chief.

His position as a molder of opinion among American scientists, his numerous European contacts, and his fluency in Russian made inevitable his role as a leader of the “Pugwash” movement. The call for an international conference of scientists to discuss the perils of the nuclear age was raised by India’s Prime Minister Nehru in 1954. The suggestion was taken up in an exchange of letters between Rabinowitch, as representative of the Federation of Atomic Scientists, and the representative of the Atomic Scientists Association of Great Britain, Joseph Rotblat. The Soviets entered the discussions indirectly through an organization of non-scientists, the Association of Parliamentarians for World Government, which held its conference in London in August 1955; Rabinowitch and Rotblat were among the conferees. Subsequently Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell’s joint “appeal” for an international conference of scientists gave impetus to these preliminary organizational attempts. The “appeal” plus the financial assistance of Cyrus Eaton enabled the first Pugwash Conference to convene in 1957 at Eaton’s estate, Pugwash, Nova Scotia. Rabinowitch, a founder of the organization, served as a member of the International Continuing Committee of Pugwash from 1957 to 1973 and was president of the movement from 1969 to 1970.

Since the first conference the scientists met many more times. Originally, the talks centered upon the scientific implications of atomic energy such as the dangers of nuclear weapons in the atmosphere and the effect of strontium 90 upon the genetic future of humanity. In later meetings the discussions probed the problems of underdeveloped nations and the cooperative roles that science and government should play to increase the food supply, check the population growth, and raise industrial production in these critical parts of the world.

In 1968 Rabinowitch retired from the University of Illinois and took a position with the State University of New York at Albany as professor of biology and chemistry and as senior advisor to the newly-established Center for Science and the Future of Human Affairs (later called the Center for the Study of Science and Society). Rabinowitch's son, Victor, was director of the Center from 1968 to 1970. Following Victor's resignation, Eugene Rabinowitch served as acting director from March to September 1970. Rabinowitch retired from SUNY at Albany on August 31, 1972 and was immediately reappointed as a visiting professor for the 1972/73 school year. At this time Rabinowitch was given a leave of absence from the University in order to accept a fellowship with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars of the Smithsonian Institute. While in Washington, he continued to write, edit the Bulletin, and participate in Pugwash. Eugen I. Rabinowitch died on May 15, 1973 at Washington, D. circa, at the age of seventy-two.

Scope Note

Series I. PUGWASH CONFERENCE MATERIALS

Series I is divided into twenty-one subseries, documenting the most of the First through Nineteenth Pugwash Conferences, the 1954 Conference, and several Pugwash Symposiums.

This records include agendas, copies of papers presented and speeches given at the conferences, lists of participants, minutes, conference statements, press releases, and notes.

Series II. PROFESSIONAL AND ACADEMIC MATERIALS

Series II documents Rabinowitch’s professional work beyond participation in the Pugwash Conferences, primarily his career in academia and as editor for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists as well as his ongoing interest in atomic science. It is divided into six subseries.

Subseries 1 includes lecture notes and a resume. Subseries 2 is a collection of reports, pamphlets and articles on science in the Soviet Union, reflecting Rabinowitch’s keen interest in science globally and politically. Subseries 3 are Rabinowitch’s notes for speeches and talks. Subseries 4 contains clippings on science, politics and nuclear weapons. Rabinowitch’s correspondence with individuals is in Subseries 5; including letters from Topchiev and Skobeltzyn, representing the Soviet Academy of Science. Correspondence with associations and institutions is in Subseries 6. These last two subseries include many draft articles and discussion about publication of publication, by Rabinowitch and others.
