The core of the 1970/71 "Don't Make A Wave Committee", which later formed Greenpeace (from right): Irving Stowe, a lawyer, Paul Cote, a law student, and Jim Bohlen, a forestry scientist. Stowe and Bohlen were long-standing peace activists. Bohlen, a world war veteran, had once worked for the US arms programme; Stowe, a Quaker, brought the idea of bearing witness into the organization. Stowe died in 1974. Bohlen was among the founders of the Green Party of Canada and was Director of Greenpeace Canada for a while, Cote left after a few months. ©Greenpeace
