JPat Brown, B.C.D. Lipton, & Michael Morisy: Scientists Under Surveillance

Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Building N50, MIT Press Bookstore
301 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

MIT Press Bookstore and Cambridge Science Festival welcome editors JPat Brown, B.C.D. Lipton, and Michael Morisy for a discussion of their book, Scientists Under Surveillance: The FBI Files.

When the Cold War was at its hottest, the FBI cast a suspicious eye on scientists working in a wide range of disciplines. Scientists Under Surveillance gathers FBI files on some of the most famous scientists in America--including Neil Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Vera Rubin, and Richard Feynman--and reproduces them in their original typewritten, teletyped, hand-annotated form.

JPat Brown is Executive Editor of MuckRock.

B. C. D. Lipton is Senior Reporter at MuckRock.

Michael Morisy is cofounder of MuckRock.
