Blumenfeld Peace Fund Award

The Board of the Franz Blumenfeld Peace Fund has awarded Mr A. Walter Dorn $750 as support for his efforts to bring about a workshop on the Control of Chemical and Biological Weapons, with emphasis on verification and assured compliance issues. The Board is chaired by Prof Christian Bay of the Department of Political Science of the University of Toronto with Prof. Cynthia Folzer of the Chemistry Department of the University of Waterloo and Prof. John Buttrick of the Economics Department, Bethune College, York University as members. They commended Dorn’s application as “a highly worth while undertaking, in our judgment, and, with a realistic budget and with highly professional, carefully prepared supporting documents.”

A contingent request for the another grant of equal amount has been approved for February in the event that a supplementary grant from another source fails to materialize.
