Excerpts from E. Wigner’s Address to the USCDC Conference, St. Paul

  • E. P. Wigner
Part of the The Collected Works of Eugene Paul Wigner book series (WIGNER, volume B / 8)


First, let me thank for the great honor of having been invited to address this gathering. I very much appreciate this opportunity, the opportunity to share some thoughts with you, the leaders of our civil defense effort. I equally appreciate something else that I received but did not foresee: the many new ideas and observations which were given to us, myself included, by the speakers at our gathering. I hope I’ll remember long most of what struck me as new and very, very relevant.
