Los Alamos Historical Society Intern
I was born and raised in Los Alamos. My mom was as well, so I have always thought I knew everything there was to know about Los Alamos and its history.
However, after I accepted a research internship at the Los Alamos Historical Society earlier this year, I quickly discovered that was not the case. My research for the Historical Society has been concentrated on Los Alamos during the Cold War. That era makes up more than half of our community’s post–World War II history, and a great deal of the Los Alamos we know today developed during that time.
