YEAR XIV… (Feb, 1956)

This is an oddly progressive ad in that it says they are looking for men and women. Most just say men. Of course, it’s in the middle of nowhere, so they might have been running short of girls.

YEAR XIV…

…IN THE AGE OF NUCLEAR AND THERMONUCLEAR DEVELOPMENT

Interested in it? So are we!

For here at world-famous Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, responsible for unleashing the terrifying power of the atom, we are now pioneering in harnessing this power for beneficial uses.

There is exciting adventure in the application of nuclear and thermonuclear energy to weapons, power and propulsion. Supporting these diverse activities here at Los Alamos are many challenging projects in basic physics, chemistry, metallurgy, mathematics and engineering.

Los Alamos needs men and women with imagination and research ability for permanent career positions. Interested? So are we!

Write us for an illustrated brochure describing the Laboratory, its delightful mountain location and its excellent housing and community facilities. Mail your request to

    Well the Lawrence Livermore Lab is closer to the SF bay area…..also one of the reasons why I grew up in Livermore.

    Possibly in respect of Lise Meitner, who first accounted for fission as the reason why so much energy emerged from the bombardment of uranium-235 with neutrons, without which of course there would be no “nuclear and thermonuclear development”.

    Yeah, she got shafted on the Nobel thing, though getting an element named after you is much cooler.
