The papers contain subject files on a range of nuclear issues; writings by Johnson, especially Nuclear Weapons Test Bans: A History; correspondence with prominent figures in government, the military, and nuclear research; materials from the SALT I and SALT II negotiations; teaching materials; and photographs of nuclear tests and international meetings on arms control.

Biography

Gerald Woodrow Johnson was born in Spangle, Washington, in 1917. He graduated from Washington State College in 1937, received the M.S. degree from the same college in 1939, and was awarded a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1947.

After teaching physics at Washington State University for two years, Johnson began working in solid state and neutron physics at Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1949. In 1951 he headed the Analysis Branch, Nuclear Weapons Effects, in the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project. Johnson joined the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory in 1953 and was later named associate director for testing, responsible for nuclear testing in Nevada and the Pacific. In 1957, he became the laboratory's first director of the Plowshare Program, an effort to develop civil, industrial, and scientific uses of nuclear explosives. From 1961 to 1963 Johnson worked in the Kennedy Administration as chairman of the military liaison committee to the Atomic Energy Commission and also as special assistant to the Secretary of Defense for atomic energy. In this position, Johnson was responsible for the safety of nuclear weapons and the introduction of permissive action links into the U.S. and NATO stockpiles. From 1963 to 1966 he was associate director of the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory and from 1966 to 1968 served as director of U.S. Navy Laboratories in Washington, D.C. In 1968 Johnson joined Gulf Energy and Environmental Systems in San Diego, where he served as manager of explosives engineering services. He was appointed director of the Atomic Energy Commission Division of Applied Technology in 1972. From 1974 to 1977 Johnson worked in energy program development for the Energy Management Division of TRW, Inc. During the following two years, he served as personal representative of the Secretary of Defense to the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks and to the Comprehensive Test Ban negotiations. Johnson returned to TRW in 1979 as a senior technical staff member of the Defense Systems Group. From 1987 to present, Johnson has held the position of Adjunct Professor of Political Science at UCSD, where he is affiliated with the Program in Science, Technology and Public Affairs and the Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation.

In addition to career positions, Johnson has served on a number of committees and delegations, including: Special Assistant to the Director of Research of the Atomic Energy Commission, 1953; Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Atomic Energy and Chairman of the Military Liaison Committee to the Atomic Energy Commission, 1961-1963; member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Defense Intelligence Agency, 1965-1969; member of several U.S. delegations regarding nuclear test monitoring and arms control, and Consultant to the Secretary of Defense, 1979-1980.

Awards presented to Johnson include the Distinguished Civilian Award by the Secretary of the Navy, 1968, and a citation from the Secretary of Defense for SALT II work, 1979.

Scope and Content of Collection

Accessions Processed in 1993

The Gerald W. Johnson Papers document the multi-faceted career of a physicist who applied his knowledge to the field of nuclear policy and atomic energy. Materials contained in the collection date from Johnson's graduate work at the University of Washington (1938) to his position as adjunct professor of political science at UCSD. The majority of the papers were produced in the period 1966-1979, when Johnson was most active in international nuclear policy. The papers contain substantial documentation of Johnson's work in energy development during the 1970s. The collection provides a rich source of information in the areas of offensive and defensive strategic systems; nuclear weapons testing, safety, and security; arms control and negotiations.

The Johnson Papers are organized in twelve series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIAL, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) SUBJECT FILES, 4) CONFERENCES, 5) TRAVEL, 6) WRITINGS, 7) SPEECHES, 8) NOTES AND DATA, 9) WRITINGS OF OTHERS, 10) PHOTOGRAPHS, 11) EPHEMERA, and 12) ORIGINALS OF PRESERVATION PHOTOCOPIES.

This file is comprised of carbon copies of outgoing office correspondence and is arranged by date.

Collected Correspondence also includes a file created by Johnson's office that contains communications regarding speeches and conventions. This file is arranged by subject and covers the years 1964-1966.

General Correspondence contains communications between Johnson and his colleagues, fellow scientists, political and military figures, and others active in the field of nuclear policy. This subseries is arranged in alphabetical order by surname of correspondent or corporate name. Correspondence for individuals represented by fewer than three items is filed alphabetically in folders labelled "Miscellaneous, A-Z." Prominent correspondents represented in the collection include Harold Brown, James Doolittle, Edward Kennedy, Willard Libby, Herbert Okun, Hyman Rickover, Stansfield Turner, Eugene Wigner, and Herbert York.

The Harold Brown correspondence dates from Brown's tenure as Secretary of Defense in the Carter Administration. Letters from Herbert Okun reflect his position as U.S. Ambassador in Berlin for arms control. Correspondence files for Gulf General Atomic and TRW provide a valuable record of energy development and defense systems activities during Johnson's career. Insight into Johnson's contributions to naval strategic systems research and development is provided by the correspondence files for Admirals Rickover and Turner and the U.S. Navy. Letters from Wigner and York document Johnson's participation in the development of U.S. nuclear policy.
