As the widow of Ernest Lawrence, I am gratified that the media are finally becoming aware of the kind of institution the Livermore Laboratory has degenerated into, largely under the influence of Edward Teller. However, my gratification over the publication of your excellent article is somewhat tempered by my disappointment that The Times, like so many others, has been taken in by the all-too-prevalent myth that Teller was the founder, or at least co-founder, of the Livermore Lab (although his persistent demands for a second weapons laboratory played an important part in its beginnings)
ARTICLES BY DATE
BOOKS
October 6, 2002 | DAVID HOLLOWAY, David Holloway is the author of "The Soviet Union and the Arms Race" and "Stalin and the Bomb." He is the director of the Institute for International Studies at Stanford University.
In "Brotherhood of the Bomb," Gregg Herken has written an immensely readable account of the lives of three physicists who led us into the Nuclear Age. Robert Oppenheimer directed the wartime effort to design and make the atomic bomb at Los Alamos; Ernest Lawrence developed the method that produced the uranium-235 for the Hiroshima bomb; and Edward Teller, the only one of the three still alive, was the chief designer of the hydrogen bomb.

Three students from Ernest Lawrence Middle School will travel to Washington, D.C., next month, bringing their design for a city of the future to compete in a national contest. Their creation, "HydroCity," is an impressive integration of high technology and basic humanity that required the students to apply advanced knowledge of mathematics and civics.

Mighty Casey comes to bat, 114 years after Ernest Lawrence Thayer's famous poem. Casey's now making $6.7 million a year while batting .237. And he don't sign no stinkin' autographs: There was ease in Casey's manner as he stepped into his place, There was pride in Casey's bearing and a smile lit Casey's face. And when responding to the cheers, he lightly doffed his cap, No stranger in the crowd could doubt 'twas Casey at the bat.
