A Minnesota newspaper in the second half of the 1960s ran a story about a convention of psychiatrists meeting in San Francisco in 1966, 1967, 1968, or 1969 (maybe 1970)
at which one of them, a Dr. T. Richard Gregory, M.D. of Phoenix, in a discussion in connection with the Vietnam War, stated that he would handle it by telling North Vietnam and China to stand down, and that if they did not, he would use nuclear weapons on North Vietnamese and Chinese cities. I need the story and reference. What would be your fees?

Thank you for your time.

I am in San Diego

P.S. If it wasn't in a Minnesota paper, it was in a Wisconsin paper, but I believe it was a Minnesota one.

Nothing on newspapers.com or genealogybank.com. You might try newspaperarchive.com, I don't have a subscription. You can also try fultonhistory.com, it's free, but it's a nightmare to navigate.

There are a number of articles that mention Dr Gregory in Phoenix though, none where he talked about China or Vietnam. They are on newspapers.com, if you'd like some, I can email them to you (PM me with your email, they may be too big to post them here).

This isn't a discussion about past politics and ethics. This is the genealogy forum and this article is probably of no use the OP.

Newspaper Collection | Library

Get on the Minnesota Historical Society's website (above) and look at their digital newspaper collection. If that doesn't help, try searching by name. If that doesn't help, click on "research services" and follow whatever procedure that will best solve your research problem.

Most states have state historical societies, and most of these have archives/research departments. They're always a good point of contact for information on how to do research in a particular state.

The Minnesota Historical Society is (thankfully) well funded and particularly good.

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) met in San Francisco in 1970.


At least that info will help you narrow down your search range.


Try contacting the APA, perhaps they have speeches given at their conventions archived.

Today I am a sunbeam shining out of a big East Coast snowstorm. LOL


Hopefully, he actually made a speech, and it wasn't just something he shouted out from his seat in the audience! I read that the 1970 convention got quite raucous on many levels.


Let us know if you find anything.
