Chemical and Biological Warfare, Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, Ninety-First Congress, First Session, April 30, 1969   [open pdf - 9MB]

This is the April 30, 1969 hearing titled "Chemical and Biological Warfare" held before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of J . W. Fulbright: "The committee's interest stems from several recent developments: The Submission by the United Kingdom of a working paper on microbiological warfare weapons to the 18-nation Disarmament Committee, and the formation earlier this year of a United Nations Special Committee [...] to examine and report on the characteristics and security implications of chemical and biological weapons. [...] As chemical and biological weapons may soon be the subject of serious international negotiations, the matter is thus clearly within this committee's responsibility. There are, of course, wider aspects of this problem that follow from the question of whether or not to adhere to a treaty and what part to play in the United Nations Special Committee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Matthew S. Meselson.
