Ruth Adams Fund
The New-Land Foundation, along with the family and friends of Ruth Salzman Adams (1923-2005), who was twice the editor of the Bulletin, joined with the organization in 2005 to establish the Ruth Adams Fund for exceptional reporting on emerging global security issues. The Ruth Adams Fund supports communications professionals--writers, web editors, and documentary film producers--who demonstrate the capacity to translate complex issues of peace and security into everyday language and images. The Ruth Adams Award is given to an exceptional Bulletin report on an emerging security issue.
Donors who share Ruth Adams's commitment to demystifying the technical aspects of peace and security issues are encouraged to help us build this fund. Contributions can be made online or by contacting Kendal Gladish in the Development Office at (312) 364-9710, ext. 17.
Ruth Adams (1923-2005) served twice as the editor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and also as a member of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and International Affairs. She excelled at finding talent--people who could produce lucid, distinctive narratives and shape policymaking. During her lifetime, she helped develop the next generation of thinkers and doers and inspired them to communicate effectively.
