Nuclear Control Institute Archives to be housed on UT campus

The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at The University of Texas at Austin announced today it has received a $133,200 gift from the Nuclear Control Institute (NCI) to establish a permanent endowment to help combat the spread of nuclear weapons. The Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Endowment will provide funds for research and education to reduce the risks of nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism, and especially to ensure that civilian  applications of nuclear technology do not foster the spread of nuclear weapons to states or terrorist groups.

In addition, NCI will transfer its core paper archives, a unique collection that documents the institute’s quarter-century of global nuclear nonproliferation activities, to the Center for American History at The University of Texas. The Strauss Center will house NCI's award-winning website,, an electronic archive offering instant access to essential historical documents. Read the full press release from The Robert S. Strauss Center.
