Founded in 1949 by Victor Paschkis, a Viennese engineer, SSRS was an international body of scientific and technical professionals who took personal responsibility for the consequences of their scientific research. SSRS put emphasis on constructive alternatives to militarism. The United States section was organized in September 1949 at Haverford, PA. The Society may have ceased after Paschkis' 1974 resignation.
