Oberlin, Ohio: Oberlin College, 1950. First Edition, First Printing. 16mo (6 3/4 x 4 1/8 inches; 170 x 115 mm), 27,  pages in stapled wrappers. A lecture on the politicization of science and the controversy over genetics in the Soviet Union. The author, Harriet B. Creighton, was a professor of botany at Wellesley College. With the Trump administration suppressing research into climate change, Creighton's final words have some resonance today: "Only an informed and alert public can defend the freedom of scientific inquiry and the right to base practice on scientifically established facts. In this defense each of us has his responsibility." This pamphlet is scarce; there were no other copies in commerce as of August 8, 2019. SCARCE. Item #2009
