At the end of World War II, Condon remained involved with the government and became director of the National Bureau of Standards. At the same time, Condon became a leading figure in the atomic scientists' movement started by former Manhattan Project researchers, working actively to educate the public on issues of atomic energy and security, and to lobby for sound public policy in these areas. Condon argued strongly against military control of atomic energy and the strict secrecy requirements that accompanied it.
Condon was harassed for many years by the House Committee on Un-American Activies because of his activism on nuclear arms control issues and his interests in international cooperation during the Cold War anti-communist hysteria.
Condon is also known by many for his role in a US Air Force study on UFO issues. The "Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects," also known as "The Condon Report," was published in 1968. The report concluded that there was little scientific reason to pursue extensive study of UFOs, causing dismay among many UFO enthusiasts.
Edward Uhler Condon died in 1974.
