Title: Norris Bradbury and Edward Teller: A Fission-Fusion Reaction

Abstract

On a bright, sunny day in October 1945, a boisterous and jubilant crowd assembled in front of Fuller Lodge to watch as the Army-Navy “E” Award, a prestigious national honor given for “Excellence in Production” during World War II, was presented to the Los Alamos Laboratory. Major General Leslie Groves, the commanding officer of the Manhattan Project; Navy Commodore William S. (Deak) Parsons, the wartime leader of the Laboratory’s Ordnance Division; Robert Sproul, the President of the University of California; and J. Robert Oppenheimer accepted the award on behalf of the Laboratory.
