A second child, Carolyn was born in 1946 and shortly thereafter, the family moved to Los Alamos, where Wendell accepted a job with the AEC Protective Force.Although their families in Kansas and Missouri were convinced they were going to the edge of the earth by moving to the western frontier, Wendell and Lois loved it.
