Governor Thornburgh and Three Mile Island
Recently, C-Span met with the Dick Thornburgh Archivist, Nancy Watson, who showed some of the papers of former Pennsylvania Governor and U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh. The papers give insight into his time as governor during the incident at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, including minute by minute notes of the incident.
Message from the Governor
The Forum was established at my Law School alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh. In connection with the Dick Thornburgh Papers held by the University's Hillman Library, the Forum reflects my experiences in public life. It is in intended to foster discourse on issues vital to the preservation of our democratic system and the Rule of Law upon which that system depends.
Special thanks are due to Chancellor Mark Nordenberg, who has been unstinting in support of this effort since its inception. In addition, many others have provided time, resources and dedication to this undertaking. Under the direction of Dr. Edward McCord of the University of Pittsburgh Honors College, we are putting our vision into action.
