Oak Ridge National Laboratory
[Small Image] 1. Oak Ridge National Laboratory workers checking for radioactive contaminants (circa 1950) (312Kbytes)
[Small Image] 2. Oak Ridge National Laboratory workers turning in their pocket dosimeters (circa 1950). Various types of dosimeters were worn by workers to measure radiation doses and prevent excessive exposure. (233Kbytes)
[Small Image] 3. Oak Ridge technicians measuring air monitor samples for radiation (158Kbytes)
[Small Image] 4. An Oak Ridge National Laboratory employee having a blood test to detect radiation exposure (circa 1950). (169Kbytes)
[Small Image] 5. Aerial view of the Oak Ridge X-10 facility (1945), which served as a pilot for the Hanford plutonium production reactors. After World War II, the facility produced isotopes for national distribution. (PHOTO: U.S. ARMY) (201Kbytes)
