Thirty years ago President Eisenhower's Atoms for Peace speech to the United Nations planted a seed from which has grown the IAEA, That agency, in turn, has given rise to an international system of inspection to verify the commitments of many nations not to divert nuclear materials from peaceful uses of atomic energy to military applications, particularly to the production of atom bombs. Now there are signs of some thought that this experience with international inspection could help to establish ways to verify some commitments of nuclear arms control and disarmament agreements. So if one sees Atoms for Peace as the parent of the agency, then this idea could be seen as a grandchild of the proposal.
