The Federation of American Scientists (FAS), Syracuse University and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) hosted a screening of the new documentary exploring the distinguished (and controversial) career of Dr. Richard Garwin, “Garwin” on April 22, 2014 in Washington, DC.
Dr. Garwin was a principal member of the team that designed the first hydrogen bomb in 1952 and has served as an advisor to every president since Eisenhower on issues of war and peace. He has dealt with important security issues such as nuclear proliferation, arms control, missile defense, and global warming. The filmmakers traveled across the country with Dr. Garwin as he pursued these and other issues. They have produced an eloquent testimony to Dr. Garwin’s contributions to peace and security. Following the screening, there was a panel discussion with Dr. Garwin and filmmakers Professor Richard Breyer and Mr. Anand Kamalakar.
