2nd Recipient, 1984, U.S.A

Dr.Jack was a Unitarian U’niversalist clergyman and the first secretary general of the World Conference on Religion and Peace. He endeavored to protect human rights and promote disarmament and the abolition of nudear weapons. He died in 1993.”I accept the Niiwano Peace Prize for promoting ‘world peace through interreligious cooperation.’ I do sowith humility. But also I do so with impatience. We have scarcely time to finish the task of abolishing nuclear weapons before these devices of death will soon abolish us.” From Dr. Jack’s acceptance speech
