CWIHP Celebrates Ten-Year Anniversary with "Summit" Meeting

March 02, 2001 // 12:00amMarch 01, 2001 // 11:00pm

On 2-3 March 2001, CWIHP marked its tenth anniversary with a large conference that gathered over 100 scholars and representatives from cold war research groups around the world. The key note address "Cold Wars?" was delivered by Harvard historian Ernest May. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, now a Senior Policy Scholar at the Wilson Center, spoke about the significance of "Cold War secrecy and its legacy." A panel chaired by Melvyn Leffler discussed the state of the field of cold war studies and the CWIHP. A series of "reports from the field" on the second day of the meeting displayed the remarkable breath of ongoing cold war research, archive and declassification initiatives, leading one scholar to remark that "this is not a project, but a movement."
