Biographical Sketch

Hugo A. Bedau (Ph.D., Harvard, 1961) is a commentator, scholar, and activist for the abolition of capital punishment. He is a prominent spokesperson in the abolitionist movement and well-known for his scholarship and writing concerning the death penalty and the challenge to separate logical arguments from moral arguments.

Bedau completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Redlands in 1949, did his graduate work at Boston University, and attained his doctorate in 1961 from Harvard University. [Who's Who in America. 62nd ed. 2008]. Before getting his doctorate, Bedau worked as an instructor and lecturer at Dartmouth College and Princeton University as his growing interest in death penalty issues led to an offer to serve on the Board of Directors of the American League to Abolish Capital Punishment. In 1961, Bedau completed the doctoral program and was soon hired as an Associate Professor at Reed College where he stayed from 1962-1966. During this time he published his first book,The Death Penalty in America: An Anthology(1962), that is currently in its 4th edition.

In 1966, Bedau was hired as Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University where spent the next thirty-three years as he helped found the Center for the Study of Decision Making. Among his scholarly work, Bedau is the author of theCourts, the Constitution and Capital Punishment(1977);Death is Different(1987); co-author,In Spite of Innocence(1992); editor,Civil Disobedience in Focus(1991);Current Issues and Enduring Questions(4th edition, 1996); co-editor,Capital Punishment in the United States(1976); and a contributor to many other volumes. He has also written books about writing such asCritical Thinking, Reading, and Writing(2nd edition, 1996). His Romanell - Phi Beta Kappa lectures delivered at Tufts in the spring of 1995, were published by Oxford University Press under the title,Making Moral Choices. [Hugo Adam Bedau. Tufts Philosophy http://ase.tufts.edu/philosophy/people/bedau.shtml]. In addition, he has published hundreds of articles, essays, and commentaries on capital punishment.

In addition to his scholarship, Bedau has been active in the capital punishment abolition movement for many decades. He was the chairman of the board for the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP) and a board member for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Massachusetts, the American League to Abolish Capital Punishment and several other organizations. He has also been a long time member of the Massachusetts Citizens Against the Death Penalty (MCADP) and an active member of such organizations as the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Amnesty International, the American Philosophical Association, American Association of University Professors, and the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy. Bedau has frequently testified before state and federal legislative committees as an expert on the issue of capital punishment and has advocated for Death Row inmates, such as Harold "Wili" Otey who was executed in 1994 in Nebraska.

Bedau married his second wife Constance Elizabeth Putnam in 1990. In 1992, she co-authoredIn Spite of Innocencewith Bedau and Michael Radelet. [Who's Who in America. 62nd ed. 2008]. Bedau has four children from his first marriage: Lauren, Mark Adam, Paul Hugo, and Guy Anthony, as well as four grandchildren. [Who's Who in America. 62nd ed. 2008 and Hugo Adam Bedau. Tufts Philosophy http://ase.tufts.edu/philosophy/people/bedau.shtml]. After retiring from Tufts in 1999, Bedau has continued writing, speaking and working for the abolition of capital punishment.

On August 13, 2012 Hugo Bedau passed away at the age of 85. [New York Times Obituary. Last accessed September 24, 2012. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/17/us/hugo-bedau-philosopher-who-opposed-death-penalty-dies-at-85.html].

Scope and Contents

The Hugo A. Bedau Papers encompasses a lifetime of research, scholarship, and political activism regarding the issue of capital punishment. All items in this manuscript group were transferred to the University Libraries' M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives by Hugo A. Bedau in 2002 as part of the National Death Penalty Archive. The collection is arranged into four series: Series 1: Scholarship and Teaching; Series 2: Correspondence; Series 3: Advocacy Organization; and Series 4: Subject Files.

The Bedau Papers are a valuable resource to scholars, students and historians studying the controversial and politically volatile subject of capital punishment from 1955 -2002. The records in this collection reflect Bedau's commitment as a leading academic and activist challenging the fundamental legality of the death penalty. The entire collection, totaling nearly 37 cubic feet, contains Bedau's drafts, reprints, correspondence, writings and unpublished work, conference materials, newsletters, records from advocacy organizations, and capital punishment case files.

Series 1 is devoted to Bedau's scholarly writings including manuscripts, journal articles, book chapters, opinion pieces, and transcripts of testimonies Bedau gave to state and federal legislatures. Of note are unpublished works such as drafts, notes, studies, proposals, reports, conference papers, lectures, grant proposals and reports. This series also features Bedau and Michael Radelet'sMiscarriages of Justice in Potentially Capital Casesincluding drafts, professional critiques, testimonies, correspondence, notes, and news clippings.

Series 2 contains a tremendous amount of correspondence with many of Bedau's colleagues such as: Anthony Amsterdam, William Bowers, Peggy Davis, Watt Espy, Gerald Gottlieb, David Kendall, Douglas Lyons, Philip Mackey, Michael Radelet, Marc Riedel, Victor Streib, Neil Vidmar, Marvin Wolfgang, and Franklyn Zimring. This series begins in 1957 and continues for Bedau's entire career.

Reflecting Bedau's work with abolition organizations, Series 3 contains minutes of meetings, project files, newsletters, press packets, correspondence, event and conference material for many abolitionist groups such as the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP), Massachusetts Citizens Against the Death Penalty (MCADP), Amnesty International, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the Legal Defense Fund. The collection also contains various newsletters, press packets, correspondence, and information about many other regional organizations including: the Alabama Committee to Abolish the Death Penalty, Murder Victims Families for Reconciliation, Detention Ministry and the Colorado Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.

Series 4 contains research material and newspaper clippings collected by Bedau and covers more than 40 years of capital punishment issues and cases of interest to him. This series closely follows Bedau's original arrangement schemes of organization by location, case and subject and contains a diverse collection of news clippings, journal articles, and court decisions.
