February 2000, Eric Olson speaks at Loyola College

Eric Olson gives a talk on the Frank Olson story for students and faculty at at Loyola College, Baltimore. The talk is titled: “Mind Control Murder: The CIA, LSD, and the Limits of Human Experimentation.” The event is sponsored by the Peace and Justice Center at Loyola College and is hosted by Dr. Richard Boothby, Chair of the Philosophy Department.

Note on the event: Both faculty and students were deeply troubled by the story of my father’s death, particularly as it seems to suggest the dark side of the American victory in the Cold War without providing easy or obvious pathways for reform.(EO)
