Extinction1982
HeadquartersWashington DC, USA
A small but influential Washington based group started by Cercle member Miles Costick.

It is interesting that a Washington-based[1] small group which was "run on a shoestring" would nevertheless excite the interest of the commercially-controlled media.

Headquarters

The group was based at 499 So. Capitol St., Suite 404A, in Washington D.C.

Lifetime

Examination of its publications suggests that it started in 1978 and became inactive in the early 1980s. It was mentioned in The New York Times in February 1982.[2]

Influence

The group published a number of books on technology transfer from the US to the USSR. It also appears to have bolstered the credibility of its founder and president, Miles Costick, who testified before the US Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs on technology transfer to the USSR.[3]
