What others say about the Wisconsin Project
Keeping Watch on Iran Nukes; Web Site Provides Data - The Capital Times (Madison, Wisconsin), August 9 2005.
[...] Iran Watch was launched in September 2004 and now has more than 7,000 searchable pages of information about Iran's nuclear activities, pulled together from a vast array of sources, from the International Atomic Energy Agency to the U.S. government.
Along with regular status reports on Iran's latest activities, one of the site's main features is a comprehensive list of "suspect entities." For example, a browser interested in Natanz - a nuclear production plant in Iran - can conduct a search and pull up a detailed profile of the facility. The synopsis explains why Milhollin and Lincy identified Natanz as the most troubling Iranian entity: because, if fully developed, it could produce substantial amounts of enriched uranium, a key ingredient in nuclear weapons technology.

Activist Chips Away U.S. Support
for Liberal Trade - The Asian Wall Street Journal, Weekly Edition,
March 22-28, 1999.
Headline-spawning reports of Chinese technology theft may be one reason U.S. support for free technology trade is eroding. But another is the work of Gary Milhollin, a privately funded foe of arms proliferation.
His whistle-blowing on an unlicensed shipment of a U.S. supercomputer to the China Academy of Sciences two years ago was a blow that helped force the usually business-friendly Clinton administration to back off from its liberal export-control policies. "How smart is it to sell a supercomputer to an entity that helped develop nuclear warheads aimed at U.S. cities?" asks the University of Wisconsin law professor, with his usual flair for the attention-getting turn of phrase. [...]
Proliferation Tango - the Progessive, April 1998 (PDF)
[...] Gary Milhollin, founder of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, [...] is a complicated character. One of the main advocates dedicated to exposing and stopping the spread of weapons of mass destruction, he is respected by colleagues in the anti-nuclear movement for his groundbreaking work. At the same time, with his hawkish views on U.S. foreign policy, he is friendly with the national security establishment. [...]
Nuclear Sleuth - Purdue Alumnus, Summer 1994.
Some people chase power. Some chase the dollar. Some chase celebrity. Gary Milhollin chases the Bomb.
From a small office just northwest of the White House, Milhollin (ME61) heads the non-profit Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, which tracks the spread of weapons of mass destruction. His specialty is the nuclear wannabe's-countries like Iraq and North Korea-which are dead-set on joining the "nuclear club." [...]
Spreading the Word Against Spreading the Bomb (PDF) -
The Milwaukee Journal, January 23, 1994
Three blocks northwest of the White House, a bronze statue of Union Adm. David Farragut stands vigil against Confederate artillery. Half a block farther north, a University of Wisconsin-Madison law professor stands vigil against a more modern and sinister threat: the spread of nuclear weapons.
From a humble start in 1986, Gary Milhollin - director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control - has become one of the world's influential experts on the proliferation of the archtypal weapon of the 20th century.
Monitoring the Nuke-Mart - On Wisconsin, November-December 1990.
[...] An article that appeared in the New York Times just days before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait warned that "Third-World tyrants, armed with missiles and A-bombs, are fast replacing the Soviets as the greatest threat to American cities." Its author is law professor Gary Milhollin, director of the Washington-based Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control. "I don't claim to be a prophet," he says. "It just seemed obvious to me that it was a dangerous situation. We have been shortsighted and imprudent in what we have sent them."
Milhollin has made a career out of pointing out what others prefer to ignore. He tracks the sale of nuclear materials to Third World countries like Iraq that are trying to get the bomb. Then he publicizes his findings to the press to embarrass arms merchants and their governments into halting these sales. [...]
The Case of Missing Heavy Water - The Washington Times, June 16, 1988.
In the case of the purloined heavy water, Gary Milhollin is on the trail.
Something of a private citizen turned private eye, he has earned an international reputation as a tracker of black market sales of nuclear materials to Third World nations racing to get the bomb.
"If countries are doing things that they're not supposed to, I try to find out about it and embarrass them in the newspapers," says the University of Wisconsin law professor and Washington-based nuclear arms proliferation specialist. "That's one of the things I like to do." [...]
UW Nuke-watcher's Office Is the World - Wisconsin State Journal, March 15, 1987.
Gary Milhollin is a nuclear warrior in a wrinkled trenchcoat. [...]
As recently as last month, Milhollin helped persuade the government of Norway to use, for the first time since 1961, its rights to inspect heavy water sold to Israel nearly 30 years ago. [...]
