Paul Doty, presidential adviser on nuclear arms control

With one foot planted in Harvard Yard, the other among scientists in the Soviet Union, Paul Doty became a leading adviser to successive presidential administrations on nuclear arms control as he bridged the intellectual divide during the Cold War.

As founder of what is now the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard, he also nurtured a generation of policy makers who have helped shape nonproliferation accords. Its graduates have continued, into the Obama administration, to advise world leaders on the most complex, delicate, and dangerous aspects of science and technology.
