Kenneth R Gregg - 8/2/2005

Virgil Jordan, then Leonard Read's boss at the (National Industrial) Conference Board, wrote a pamphlet criticizing the use of the A-Bomb and F.A. Harper's classic "In Search of Peace" were written in opposition to Truman's use (and Ike's administration's threats to use) of the Atomic Bomb.

As I recall, both Robert LeFevre and his wife, Loy, were active opponents of the A-Bomb as well.

This was one of the issues which libertarians were unanimous in opposing at the time.

Just a thought.
