GLENN T. SEABORG. Typed Letter signed: "Glenn T. Seaborg", 1p, 8½x11. Berkeley, California, 1979 May 1. On letterhead of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory to Dr. David A. Marcus, Palm Springs, CA. In full: "This is in reply to your letter of April 26, 1979.We do not have available any alternatives to fossil fuel and nuclear energy that can make a sufficient contribution to our needed energy supply. I am enclosing a copy of an article that compares the risks attendant with the generation of energy in its various forms. Sincerely yours". Seaborg (1912-1999) was a co-recipient of the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work as co-discoverer of elements#94 Plutonium (in 1941), #95 Americium, #96 Curium, #97 Berkelium and #98 Californium. Later, he played a part in creating elements #99 Einsteinium, #100 Fermium, #101 Mendelevium and #102 Nobelium. In 1994, a new element (#106 Seaborgium) was named after him, the first time the honor has been bestowed upon a living person. Seaborg worked on the Manhattan Project developing the atomic bomb, but signed a letter to President Truman urging that the bomb be dropped on a barren island as a demonstration. He chaired the Atomic Energy Commission (1961-1971) and helped negotiate the nuclear test ban treaty of 1963. Full-length horizontal crease in left margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
