Jukes, Thomas H. (Thomas Hughes), 1906-1999, creator


Edwards, J. Gordon.


Chiefly copies of Jukes's correspondence, articles, speeches, and miscellaneous writings concerning his research and views regarding the use of pesticides, particularly DDT, which he sent to Prof. J. Gordon Edwards. Most of the materials have been annotated by both Jukes and Edwards; Edwards supplied all the folder headings, along with his editorial comments concerning the materials and issues discussed. Jukes and Edwards were staunch proponents of DDT, and these materials document their controversies with other scientists, environmentalists, environmental organizations, and editors of scientific journals, textbooks, and the popular press.
