Description

Series 8, Subseries 6, Study of War and Democratic Institutions (The Individual and the Common Defense), 1957-1962, was initially designed to study the government's effort to provide for the country's common defense. The project sought to identify the significant points of impact the government's defense measures and defense organization were having upon democratic institutions. The study was later expanded to examine the feasibility and attainability of a world without war. Noted historian Walter Millis was the staff administrator responsible for the study and was aided by Consultant Isidor I. Rabi. Housed within this subseries are position papers, articles, correspondence, memoranda, and transcripts.
