The Ainslie Archive contains the vast archives of the late nuclear weapons researcher John Ainslie. Over 3000 documents, reports, press cuttings, de-classified UK, US and Russian government memos collected by John over his long career. There is also a link to 20 reports authored by John Ainslie, a webinar reflecting on his life and work with friends and colleagues and a series of short video highlights from the archive. The archive preservation was funded by donations and the hard copies are now in the National Library of Scotland.

We are very grateful for grants from Lansbury House Trust, Scottish CND and the many individual donations that have enabled us to scan and upload the documents which are now hosted by the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh.
