1. Linus Pauling (1962) Marker
Inscription.  Linus Pauling, scientist, formed the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists to petition against nuclear weapons. Pauling was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1962 for his campaign against nuclear weapons testing. His influence contributed to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963.

*Pauling had his U.S. passport confiscated because of his work. It was restored after he won the Peace Prize.

The danger is not from peace or from the workers for peace... It is from the stockpiles of nuclear weapons that exist in the world.
