Special Collections Display Cases 

Operation Crossroads: Post-War Nuclear Testing on the Bikini Atoll, 1946
Photographs and documents from the Wilbur Y. Walworth Collection


 

 

 

 

 

 

In the Special Collections display cases (outside of the Special Collections Room) you will find a new exhibit highlighting photographs and related materials donated to the library by the late Wilbur Walworth's wife, Vivian. These fascinating and powerful images were taken during the summer of 1946 when Mr. Walworth, as an electrical engineer and recent veteran, was invited to participate as a "civilian observer" in two nuclear tests being conducted on the Bikini Atoll.  Wilbur and Vivian Walworth, along with their five children, were residents of Conantu.
