Abstract

The occasion for my first meeting with Richard Nixon after he became president was an aide-mémoire that the Soviet chargé d’affaires had handed the State Department on the first day of the new administration. The note alleged that there had been a possible violation of the 1963 Limited Test Ban Treaty (LTBT) in connection with the December 8, 1968, explosion in Nevada of an excavation experiment named Schooner in AEC’s program for the peaceful uses of atomic explosions.
