‘A galvanizing force’: Vigil held in remembrance of activist Daniel Ellsberg August 21, 2023

Most vigil attendees personally knew Ellsberg, according to Gould. For him, Ellsberg was an inspiration.

“In the 1970s, Dan was very much in my mind,” Gould said. “I really appreciated his founding courage in releasing the Pentagon Papers … so Dan was very inspirational to me from the time he very courageously challenged the Nixon administration.”

Gould first met Ellsberg in 1992, when Ellsberg was hired by the nation-wide Physicians for Social Responsibility to direct the Manhattan Project 2, an effort to dismantle the nuclear bombs that had previously been built.
