The Living Legacy of Council Founder Leo Szilard

Leo Szilard
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the culmination of the secret Manhattan Project, which produced the first atomic bombs. As one of the preeminent scientists to suggest the extreme danger posed by these weapons, Leo Szilard founded the Council for a Livable World in 1962. His legacy lives on through the Council’s committed efforts to decrease the threat of nuclear weapons.
