About this Item: Simon and Schuster, New York, 1959. Hardcover. First edition. First printing [stated]. xiii, [1], 302, [4] p. 22 cm. Prologue by Florence D. Laurence. From Wikipedia: "William Leonard Laurence (March 7, 1888 March 19, 1977) was a Jewish Lithuanian-born American journalist known for his science journalism writing of the 1940s and 1950s while working for the New York Times. He received two Pulitzer Prizes, and as the official historian of the Manhattan Project was the only journalist to witness the Trinity test and the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. He is credited with coining the iconic phrase "Atomic Age" which became popular in the 1950s.Laurence was born in Salantai, then part of Russia though now in Lithuania, and emigrated to the United States in 1905 after participating in the Russian Revolution of 1905. His name was originally Leib Wolf Siew, but he changed it after immigrating, taking "William" after William Shakespeare, "Leonard" after Leonardo da Vinci, and "Lawrence" after a street he lived on in Roxbury, Massachusetts (he changed the "w" to a "u" in reference to Friedrich Schiller's Laura). He attended college at Harvard University, Harvard Law School, and Boston University, and became a naturalized United States citizen in 1913. During World War I, he served with the U.S. Army Signal Corps, and in 1919 attended the University of Besançon in France. In 1926 he began his career as a journalist, working for The New York World. In 1930 he began working at The New York Times, specializing where possible in reporting on scientific issues. He married Florence Davidow in 1931. In 1934, Laurence co-founded the National Association of Science Writers, and in 1936 he covered the Harvard Tercenary Conference of Arts and Sciences, work for which he and four other science reporters received the 1937 Pulitzer Prize in Journalism. In May 1940, Laurence published a front-page exclusive in the New York Times on successful attempts in isolating uranium-235 which were reported in Physical Review, and outlined many (somewhat hyperbolic) claims about the possible future of nuclear power. He had assembled it in part out of his own fear that Nazi Germany was attempting to develop atomic energy, and had hoped the article would galvanize a U.S. effort. Though his article had no effect on the U.S. bomb program, it was passed to the Soviet mineralogist Vladimir Vernadsky by his son, a professor of history at Yale University, and motivated Vernadsky to urge Soviet authorities to embark on their own atomic program and established one of the first commissions to formulate "a plan of measures which it would be necessary to realize in connection with the possibility of using intraatomic energy" (no full-scale atomic energy program began in the Soviet Union until after the war, however). In April 1945, Laurence was summoned to the secret Los Alamos laboratory in New Mexico by General Leslie Groves to serve as the official historian of the Manhattan Project. In this capacity he was also the author of many of the first official press releases about nuclear weapons, including some delivered by the Department of War and President Harry S. Truman. He was the only journalist present at the Trinity test in July 1945, and beforehand prepared statements to be delivered in case the test ended in a disaster which killed those involved. As part of his work related to the Project, he also interviewed the airmen who flew on the mission to drop the atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Laurence himself flew aboard the B-29 The Great Artiste, which served as a blast instrumentation aircraft, for the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. He visited the Test Able site at Bikini Atoll aboard the press ship, 'Appalachian', for the bomb test on July 1, 1946. For his wartime coverage, he received a Pulitzer Prize in 1946. At the office of the Times he was thereafter referred to as "Atomic Bill", to differentiate him from William H. Lawrence, a political reporter at the newspaper. In his autobiography, Richard Feynman mentioned William Laurence standing next to. Seller Inventory # 66869

About this Item: Simon and Schuster, New York, 1959. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good - See below/images. No Jacket. First Edition. Here we have the First Printing of this important book. Signed by Author: to the ffep in pen in 1959, from New York City, { at Christmas } "To Norah anfd John Greenwood with cordial Good Wishes William Laurence". Also Signed to the Acknowledgement page by his Sister in Law who had assisted with the preparation of the Manuscript, or her husband? Or indeed both? "With Love from Ernest P. Postlethwaites". About the Author: The science editor of The New York Times, who has practically watched the creation and history of the atomic bomb, synthesizes that history from its earliest days to the future--uses of atomic energy for the lay reader.Although the flow of information about the Manhattan Project was tightly controlled, New York Times reporter William L. Laurence was allowed unique access to the inner workings of the project. Laurence witnessed key historic moments, including the Trinity test near Alamagordo, NM, on July 16, 1945. He was upset that he was forced to remain twenty miles away from Ground Zero but drafted his own obituary just in case. Among his notes, he described Edward Teller applying sunscreen to prepare for the blast. On May 16, 1945, Laurence submitted a draft radio address to be delivered by President Truman after the first atomic bomb was dropped over Japan. However, General Leslie Groves did not approve the speech, and all copies - save one - were destroyed. Eventually the job of drafting Trumans's speech was given to Arthur W. Page, Vice President of Marketing for AT&T and a close friend of Secretary of War Henry Stimson. The book is firm, tight and clean, p. xiii, 302 ; 22 centimetres. Very Uncommon Sgned copy. Size: 8vo. DUAL SIGNED BY AUTHOR & ANOTHER. Seller Inventory # 029374
