Jerome D. Frank

(1909 - 2005)

An army psychiatrist during World War II, Jerome D. Frank was stationed in the Philippines when he heard the United States had dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. After the war he became an outspoken critic of the nuclear arms race, once telling a Baltimore audience that the nations of the world were acting like alcoholics who say, “I know the stuff is killing me, but I can’t stop.”
