From the Office of Scientific and Technical Information abstract: "Dr. Nello Pace was interviewed by representatives of the US DOE [Department of Energy] Office of Human Radiation Experiments (OHRE). Dr. Pace was selected for the interview because of the positions he held with the US Navy, at the University of California, Berkeley, and as Director of the White Mountain Research Station near Bishop, California. Following a brief biographical sketch, Dr. Pace related his remembrances concerning tritium injections experiments in animals and humans during World War II, the development of Medical Physics Degree Programs at UC Berkeley, conducting the first radiation survey at Nagasaki after the bomb, and the establishment of a research laboratory at White Mountain. He also offers reflections on Shields Warren and comments on the public`s attitudes towards radiation both then and now."
