Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forever linked with World War II and America's entrance into the Atomic Age, Los Alamos was a small ranching community and the site of an exclusive boys' school until 1943. As the Manhattan Project unfolded, Pvt. J.J. Michnovicz--first assigned to Los Alamos as a photographer by the military but later working as a civilian--recorded the everyday spirit of the people and the events that shaped this mountain town into a home . . . and secret scientific hotbed. This comprehensive view of the social and professional world of Los Alamos is the photographic journal of a singular period, as seen through the eyes of one soldier.

About the Author

Authors Toni Michnovicz Gibson and Jon Michnovicz have sifted through their father's remarkable snapshots of the sleepy town that just happened to be the epicenter of the Manhattan Project. With official government portraits, documentation of award ceremonies, and Michnovicz's own photographic perusings of this unique western town, Los Alamos: 1944-1947 examines everyday life during this extraordinary era in the community's history.
