Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection includes correspondence, publications, scrapbooks, photographs, realia and audio/audio-visual materials related to the evolution of Earle Reynolds and his family as peace activists.
Earle Reynolds began his career as a physical anthropologist. In 1951 his life was forever changed after he went to Hiroshima to study the effects of the atomic bomb. When he embarked with his family on a world voyage aboard their yacht, The Phoenix of Hiroshima, fate set him on a path that would lead him to his life's work--the struggle for peace. The Earle Reynolds Archive is located in the Special Collections of McHenry Library, at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
