MIT Press Bookstore and Cambridge Science Festival welcome editors JPat Brown, B.C.D. Lipton, and Michael Morisy for a discussion of their book, Scientists Under Surveillance: The FBI Files.
When the Cold War was at its hottest, the FBI cast a suspicious eye on scientists working in a wide range of disciplines. Scientists Under Surveillance gathers FBI files on some of the most famous scientists in America–including Neil Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Vera Rubin, and Richard Feynman–and reproduces them in their original typewritten, teletyped, hand-annotated form.
JPat Brown is Executive Editor of MuckRock.
B. C. D. Lipton is Senior Reporter at MuckRock.
Michael Morisy is cofounder of MuckRock.
