Living History: The famous among us

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

The spirits of J. Robert Oppenheimer and Leslie Groves seem present to people who know the history of Los Alamos, but their likenesses will soon stand exactly where they once stood more than 60 years ago. With the help of historical sculptures, visitors and residents will no longer have to imagine the past. Former County Councilor Nancy Bartlit has spearheaded a project to bring bronze representations of prominent figures to Los Alamos, and currently serves as chairperson of a committee assigned to create a master plan for locating them. She began working on the project in 2003.

“I was president of the Historical Society,” Bartlit said. “The prospect of Los Alamos becoming a part of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park made me think about making the experience of visiting Los Alamos more appealing to visitors.”
