First “Atomic Program” announcements

Picture 1 of 52

Other than the many early NRC-DIL photographs the Society has acquired, some of which are displayed on the “Early Days at Deep River” and “Early Days at CRNL” pages on the website, newspaper clippings have been the most important source of information. This clipping from the 13 August 1945 issue of the Toronto Star exposes to the Canadian public the Canadian “atomic program”.

Clipping donated by Diana McElroy – her father was R.L. Graham.
