Two manuscript versions of the book TOWARD A LIVABLE WORLD: LEO SZILARD AND THE CRUSADE FOR NUCLEAR ARMS CONTROL (1987) prepared
by Helen S. Hawkins and co-edited with G. Allen Greb and Gertrude Weiss Szilard. The early version (1974-1976) contains a
larger volume of documents by Leo Szilard than the later condensed version. The materials follow a chronological sequence
which dates from 1945 to 1964. The collection is arranged in one series: 1) TOWARD A LIVABLE WORLD... MANUSCRIPT MATERIALS.
Accessions processed in 1996 contain videorecordings and cassette audiorecordings of interviews conducted by Helen Hawkins
while at KPBS Public Television in San Diego, California. The materials are arranged in two series: 2) VIDEORECORDINGS and
3) CASSETTE AUDIORECORDINGS.
