Nuclear Princeton worked with the Program on Science and Global Security to create an archive of Bruce Blair's publications. Blair, who passed away in July 2020, was a research scholar in the Program on Science and Global Security. As co-founder of the Global Zero movement, Blair was a strong advocate for the elimination of nuclear weapons. Blair served on the U.S. Secretary of State’s International Security Advisory Board from 2011 to 2017. He also served as a senior fellow in the Foreign Policy Studies Program at the Brookings Institution and as a project director at the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment. In addition, Blair served as a Minuteman ICBM launch control officer in the U.S. Air Force and as a support officer for the Airborne Command Post of the Strategic Air Command.

For this project, we identified all of Blair's publications, including academic and news articles, books and edited volumes, congressional testimony, reports, TV broadcasts, talks and speeches, and more. After identifying this material, we retrieved PDFs and videos of the material and organized it chronologically. All citations for the publications are available in a Zotero drive which can be accessed here.
