Tor Ragnar Gerholm (1925-2007) [1] [2] was Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Stockholm and member of the Nobel Prize selection committee for physics.

For a long time he was active in the 'International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences' (ICUS). ICUS can be seen as part of Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church (UC) and it is sponsored by UC's International Cultural Foundation (ICF). Gerholm was in 1991 one of the three vice-chairmen of ICUS (other two were Michael J. Higatsberger and Se Won Yoon) [3] [4] and he was from 1992 the chairman of that conference. [5] Just like Michael J. Higatsberger he was also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP). SEPP started in 1990 as an affiliate of UC's Washington Institute for Values in Public Policy.

Like most SEPP board members Tor Ragnar Gerholm was one of the signers of the Leipzig Declaration.
