Scope and Contents

This collection contains a 142 page undated typescript, "The Suppressed Facts of the Rosenberg Case," by Erwin Edelman. This critique of the United States government's case against Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were convicted in 1951, then executed in 1953, for allegedly conspiring to commit espionage to give information to the Soviet Union on the construction of U.S. atomic bombs, focuses on the problematic notion of the existence of an "atomic bomb secret."
