Los Alamos County will host a dedication ceremony for two life-size bronze statues honoring Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and General Leslie R. Groves at 4:45 p.m. Thursday at Fuller Lodge.
Oppenheimer was scientific director of the Manhattan Project and Groves was commanding general of the Manhattan Project. The statues are the culmination of many years of research, planning and design work by members of the County’s Fuller Lodge/Historic District Advisory Board.
The statues are the first of many planned for installation under the County’s adopted Historic Sculptures Master Plan. The statues honor those who have had a significant impact and contribution to Los Alamos throughout its history.
