Description:

At the height of McCarthyism, Oppenheimer's politics during the 1930s came under scrutiny and ultimately led to his undoing at the hands of the Atomic Energy Commission in 1953. He asked for a security hearing to review the charges, which went on for four weeks and heard testimony from 40 witnesses including Oppenheimer. Documents include: ?Testimony in the Matter of J. Robert Oppenheimer - Gen. Leslie Groves, Hans Bethe, George F. Kerman, I. I. Rabi, Edward Teller,? and ?Decision and Opinions of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in the Matter of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer.?
