EDWARD TELLERThe scientist who continued to defend the use of a nuclear bomb on Japan until his death penned his signature on this page Typescript signed: "Edward Teller", 1p, 8½x11. Typed date of 1979 July 13. Excerpt from a guest editorial by Teller in "Newsweek" magazine, 1976 May 17, advocating the need for nuclear power to meet global energy demand. Edward Teller (1908-2003), often referred to as the “Father of the Hydrogen Bomb”, was born in Hungary and educated in Germany before fleeing the Nazis. He worked on the Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic (fission) bomb, but was already looking forward to the even greater power which might be unleashed by nuclear fusion. Teller influenced U.S. Presidents of both parties with his advocacy of nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, and the Strategic DefenseInitiative. Teller made headlines in 1954 when he testified that he, personally, did not trust nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer enough to renew his security clearance. As a result of this hearing, Oppenheimer, another one of the pioneering scientists behind nuclear weapons, had his United States security clearance revoked. In his memoirs, Teller observed: "I deeply regret the deaths and injuries that resulted from the atomic bombings, but my best explanation of why I do not regret working on weapons is a question: What if we hadn't?" Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
