Overview

The President_s Science Advisory Committee (PSAC) was formed in order to provide advice and analysis to the President and the federal government on a wide range of scientific and technological matters. PSAC_s members, recognized to be among the best scientists in the United States, took on the twin questions of how science could best support U.S. national security objectives and how the United States could compete successfully with the Soviet Union in the fields of science and technology. To this end, PSAC authored numerous studies on such topics as the establishment of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), missile development, satellites, testing of nuclear weapons, arms limitations negotiations, and exchanges of scientific information with NATO countries. The records of PSAC were kept by the Eisenhower administration and were later deposited in the Eisenhower Library in Abilene, Kansas. Now, UPA_s Papers of the President_s Science Advisory Committee, 1957_1961 makes available to scholars for the first time the files and working papers of this important scientific group.
