“Leo Szilard: The Man Behind the Bomb”

A talk and book signing by William Lanouette, author of the new edition  GeniusShadow_authortalk
of Genius in the Shadows: A Biography of Leo Szilard.

Szilard, known as “the father of the atomic bomb,” was a key figure in
the establishment of the Manhattan Project.  He eventually worked to
outlaw nuclear weapons. His second career after physics was biology, and
he spent his final days as one of the first members of the Salk

The UC San Diego Library holds Szilard’s archive and has recently
received a federal grant to digitize his papers (press release).

The event is free and open to the public.

The Faculty Club’s buffet lunch will be available, at the standard price,
after the talk.
