Thomas J.Dodd Research center
Devoted to the theme of human rights, the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center honors Thomas Dodd’s service as Executive Trial Counsel in the International Military Tribunal, the first of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials. Ground was originally broken on the Center in 1993, and the finished building was dedicated by President William J. Clinton on October 15, 1995. Senator Christopher J. Dodd played a crucial role in the Center’s development and continues today to support the Center’s efforts and programming. Since then, the Dodd Center has celebrated Dodd @ 20, the 20 years since first opening.
