Stimson in the News

Michael Krepon quoted in The Mainichi on Stimson Center Photo Donation to Hiroshima Museum

in Program

A total of 21 photographs showing the effects of the atomic bombs, which Lt. Gen. Leslie Groves used to brief top officials under then U.S. President Harry Truman, will be presented to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in the near future, the Stimson Center — a Washington D.C.-based think tank — announced on May 18.


Some of the photographs — including those that show the effects of the atomic bombings — have already been made public. In an interview with the Mainichi Shimbun, however, center co-founder Michael Krepon said with regard to the collection of panels that “no one seems to know of other copies of this briefing,” which he noted was an “important historical document.”

Krepon’s idea of donating the panels to the Hiroshima museum began to be finalized when Hiroshima Gov. Hidehiko Yuzaki visited the center last year in October.
