This statement from former Senator Sam Nunn was released on the passing of Sid Drell on December 21, 2016.
“Sid Drell lived a life of extraordinary and spirited public service. Sid’s many remarkable accomplishments across the fields of physics, science, human rights and national security were based on a foundation of personal integrity and a commitment to the truth. He dedicated his life to making America and our world a safer place and working energetically on the actions required to achieve the goal of a world free of nuclear weapons. He will be missed by all of us who had the privilege of working with him. All of us benefited from his service to the nation. Colleen and I extend our condolences to the Drell family, his wife Harriet, son Daniel, and daughters Persis and Joanna.”
