Tobacco Company Seeks Access To Historian's Unpublished Manuscript
The Chronicle discusses attempts by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco to obtain access to an unpublished work by Stanford's Robert Proctor. Dr. Proctor is an expert witness in a lawsuit against the company; R. J. Reynolds thinks material in the manuscript will be helpful in its cross-examination of the historian of science. Dr. Proctor is fighting the tobacco company's subpoena.
Dr. Proctor coined the term "agnotology," a term meaning the cultural production of ignorance.
