Abstract Mr. Erickson was born on February 28, 1953 in Libertyville, Illinois. He discusses his early life including memories of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He discusses his activism as a student at Columbia during the Vietnam years and his eventual move to Salt Lake City. Describing himself as a "gunslinger for peace" he sees the most pressing issues of the world today as those surrounding war and peace. He became active in opposing the MX missile plan, founded the Citizens Education Project, and foresees future work lobbying for a test ban treaty in the Utah Legislature. Mr. Erickson has also done previous work in oral history; creating a special archive, the Steven G.
