History Associates Incorporated News – Fall 1997
Richard Hewlett, one of History Associates’ founders, was awarded a free life membership in the American Historical Association this summer in recognition of his fifty years as a member. Hewlett, who earned his Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago, was chief historian of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and its successor agencies from 1957 until 1980.
In August, Rodney Carlisle, also a founder of History Associates, completed Where the Fleet Begins. The book, a history of the Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (formerly called the David Taylor Research Center), is expected to be published for the organization’s centennial in 1998.
Brian Martin, director of litigation research, was cited in the July/August 1997 issue of the Environmental Forum: The Policy Journal of the Environmental Law Institute. A panelist at the institute’s May seminar on “past practice” in environmental litigation, Martin explained how litigation cases involving hazardous material disposal require an understanding of the historical context of standard practices and state-of-the-art knowledge at a given time.
History Associates is also working with the Department of Energy on a project to help Russian scientists preserve epidemiological data from their nuclear weapons complex by microfilming records.
