Event Description
Behind the Fog of the Cold War: Military Tests on Vulnerable Populations Without Consent

The 2012 Behavioral Sciences Colloquium presents Professor of Sociology Dr. Lisa Martino-Taylor on Tuesday, Sept. 25 from 3:30-5 p.m. in BA 105.

Covert military-sponsored studies during the Cold War targeted the city of St. Louis, whereby residents, homes and buildings were sprayed with hazardous materials from passing vehicles. This series of tests, which took place between 1953 and 1965, was connected to a vast and secretive military project. An extension of the Manhattan Atomic Bomb Project, the goal was in part to covertly test humans, both alive and deceased, in an effort to develop not just nuclear but also radiological weapons.
