Description 46 EDWIN B. FIRMAGE ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The Frederick W. Reynolds Association invited me to present their 1987 lecture and gave me rein to select my own topic. They expressed awareness, however, of my concern with weaponry, peace, and the international scene, and hinted that they would smile upon my addressing that topic. The charter of the Association directs that the faculty member delivering this lecture treat a topic "arising out of his research or thought." I am most grateful for this, for it allowed me to review two decades of my own work and then reveal where I am now. Members of the Frederick W. Reynolds Association Executive Board are B. Gale Dick, Robert Helbling, William Mulder, Walker Wallace, Virginia Frobes Wetzel, J.D. Williams, and Oakley J. Gordon. My earliest professional writing addressed the attempts of law and government to meet violence, preserve peace, do justice, and somehow deal with the spectre of nuclear weaponry. From the beginning of the 1960s to the present time this has been my theme. I am grateful to wonderful teachers along the way: to Mary and Ed Firmage, my parents, and to my grandparents, for loving nurture; to Jessie Arrowsmith, Mima Rasband, and Kate Mathews of the Maeser Elementary School in Provo, Utah, who taught peace early and best by living it; to Harry Kalven, Jr., at the University of Chicago for his sensitivity to the Constitution, particularly to the first amendment; to Hubert H. Humphrey, Roy Wilkins, and the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., for teaching a very provincial young man through humane example and friendship; to Hugh B. Brown for the integrity of a lifetime's commitment to civil rights and freedom of conscience; and to Francis Wormuth for a decade's loving friendship and collaboration on To Chain the Dog of War.* We see the Constitution through the same lens. The MX controversy introduced me to new friends who profoundly influenced my life. This event also propelled me from academic observation into political activism and interfaith dialogue. From within my own religious tradition, I had previously read the writings of J. Reuben Clark, Jr. He enjoyed a secular career as legal adviser to the Department of State and this country's negotiator of disarmament * See F. Wormuth & E. Firmage, To Chain the Dog of War: The War Power of Congress in History and Law (Dallas, Texas: SMU Press, 1986).
