NAGOYA (Kyodo) Toshiyuki Toyoda, a nuclear scientist and professor emeritus at Nagoya University who fought for nuclear disarmament, died of multiple organ failure Friday at a Tokyo hospital, the school said. He was 89.

Toyoda was one of the main members of the Japanese group at the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs set up by scientists after Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein warned the world in 1955 of the dangers of nuclear weapons following a U.S. hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific.
