Marguerite “Marge” Schreiber was the wife of Raemer Schreiber, a Manhattan Project physicist who rose to become deputy director of what was then Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory.
Marge herself served on the school board, joined the first League of Women Voters in Los Alamos, was appointed to the Los Alamos Charter Commission in 1949, founded the Girl Scouts in Los Alamos, and participated in the Los Alamos Garden Club.
She was a busy lady, even in retirement, but when the Monitor called to ask her about her early Thanksgiving experiences in Los Alamos, she responded with warmth and delight.
Raemer died in 1998, and Marge followed in 2008. But the memories Marge described in this article—published in the Monitor’s June 6, 1993, “Manhattan Project Reunion: Los Alamos at Its 50th Year”—still paint a vivid picture of the determination and creativity that characterized the people who built our community.
Her memories are well worth repeating as Los Alamos County marks its 60th anniversary.
Marguerite Schreiber recalled it fondly, even though she didn’t even have a stove then.
