In recognition of the dedication of recent Nobel prizewinner John Polanyi to peace initiatives, the Canadian Pugwash Committee, Science for Peace, the Royal Society of Canada and University College of the University of Toronto have created the Polanyi Peace Fund. This group will raise an endowment of at least $1 million to enable scholars and scientists of any field to pursue research into the varied aspects of peace and to support widespread collaboration in finding alternatives to military means of ensuring security.
Tax-deductible donations, with cheques payable to The Royal Society of Canada, should be sent to the Polanyi Peace Fund, University College E101, King’s College Circle, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ont. M5S 1A1. Further information can be obtained from William Klassen of this address; phone (416) 978-8698.
