Morrison, Philip.
Oral history interview with Philip Morrison, 2002 December 19 and 20.
Morrison had an almost unique experience during the Manhattan Project, participating in many of the central events of building and using the atomic bomb. From late 1942 to 1946, Morrison's responsibilities took him to the University of Chicago Metallurgical Lab, Los Alamos, General Groves' Washington office, Oak Ridge, Trinity site, Wendover, Tinian, Hiroshima and Hanford. From these vantage points he had the opportunity to meet and observe many of the interesting persons involved in the Project and reflects about them in this interview.
