Finally, there is one box documenting his membership and activities in Science for Peace. Included are general records such as minutes of board meetings, newsletters, reports and correspondence mainly of the Toronto Group, 1992-1999. Most files relate to his position as chair of the Ethics Committee. The work of this committee resulted in the publication of two papers "The Toronto Resolution” and "Do Scientific and Scholarly Codes of Ethics Take Social Issues into Account?" both published in Accountability in Research.
