'Frontiers' lecture features LANL historian

-A A +A

In “On the Front Lines of the Cold War: Los Alamos 1970-1992,” Alan Carr will explore the political landscape of the later Cold War years from the Los Alamos perspective by introducing the Laboratory leaders and technologies that helped win history’s most dangerous conflict.
The lecture will be 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at Fuller Lodge in the Pajarito Room.
Carr currently serves as the historian for Los Alamos National Laboratory.  During his tenure as Laboratory Historian, Carr has produced several publications pertaining to the Manhattan Project, early nuclear weapons design, and nuclear testing history. 
He has also lectured for numerous professional organizations and has been featured as a guest on many local, national and international radio and television programs, ranging from the local papers to the Albuquerque television stations to the Travel Channel.  He is the co-author of “Harold Melvin Agnew,” which appeared this year in Physics Today. Before coming to Los Alamos, Carr completed his graduate studies at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. 
His thesis, “The Long Road to Kursk: The Development, Abandonment, and Relearning of Soviet Military Strategy,” traces Soviet operational art from its roots in the early 1920s through its employment in the first half of World War II.
