Kirk, Isadore Perlman, Robert Loevinger, Frank Oppenheimer, & Joseph Weinberg?the man HUAC [incorrectly] accused of spying as Scientist X).  A search of newspapers of the period shows the NCAS as quite active in the 1946-1947 time frame, being mentioned in 46 nationwide articles, though as one might expect, much coverage came from California publications.This undated document (OCLC assigns a date of 1947) discloses a membership of over 500, and details an impressive list of sponsors, including Melvin Calvin, Robert Serber, Kenneth Pitzer, J. H. Hildebrand, and the Nobel Laureate, Otto Stern.This document?s intent, coming from the NCAS Membership Committee, was to provide comprehensive information to current and prospective members with information on the history of the NCAS, its activities and functions, the role of local groups, and a general Q&A section relating to the control of atomic energy, including commentary on broader issues of pacifism & governmental bodies.A search of OCLC shows a document record for the publication, however no institutional holdings are noted.Rare.
