On October 15, 1969 millions of people across the U.S. protested against the war in Vietnam with a national moratorium. One of the largest crowds of protestors gathered in Boston. A number of American scientists at the National Institute of Health also participated in the moratorium, bringing pediatrician and noted Vietnam War critic Dr. Benjamin Spock to speak. It was later, during the Watergate hearings, that it became publicly known that Nixon kept a list of enemies, among them a number of American scientists.
