The report was first issued in a small typescript edition reproduced by lithoprint. This copy was presented by Gen. Groves to Crawford H. Greenewalt, who served as the Du Pont Company's liaison on the Manhattan Project, on August 28, 1945. Princeton University Press later published the document under its imprint
American Philosophical Society
This collection documents Smyth's work on the Manhattan Project at Princeton University and the University of Chicago, his later published history of the development of the atomic bomb, and his work as Commissioner on the Atomic Energy Commission (1949-1954) and as U.S. Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (1961-1970). The types of materials include correspondence, speeches, reports, journals, diplomas, medals, and photographs

Best known as author of the "Smyth Report," the official government report on the development of the atomic bomb, Henry DeWolf Smyth had a long and varied career as a physicist, diplomat, instructor, policy maker, and administrator. Taking leave from his position with the Physics Department at Princeton, Smyth began work on the Uranium committee of the National Defense Research Committee in 1940, serving as a consultant on the Manhattan Project from 1943-1945. Although he returned to Princeton after the war, Smyth left academia to become Commissioner of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) from 1949 to 1954, and he subsequently served as U.S. Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), from 1961 to 1970. The Smyth Papers (1885-1987) contain correspondence, subject files, speeches, manuscripts of unpublished and published works, reprints and printed publications, scientific class notes and papers, newspaper clippings, photographs, and memorabilia which document ...
