Not Attacked: A New Book by Harold Johnston
professor emeritus Harold Johnston has a new book in print,
A Bridge Not Attacked: Chemical Warfare Civilian Research During
World War II. The book, published by World Scientific, tells
the story of young chemists involved in secret research on poison
gases in academic institutions. It
presents an almost forgotten history of secret war research by academic
chemists working on chemical warfare at Caltech and Berkeley. Johnston
himself was a participant in the work and has accumulated a large
number of writings and photographs from the 1940s.
Johnston has received numerous prizes for his work in atmospheric
chemistry, including the National Medal of Science.
