LA lecture to feature Sandia beginnings

-A A +A

Sandia National Laboratories historian Rebecca Ullrich will discuss Sandia’s transition from a Los Alamos division to an independent organization during a presentation at 5:30 p.m. March 13 at the Bradbury Science Museum. The talk is part of the laboratory’s 70th anniversary lecture series.

Sandia Labs’ origins are in Los Alamos’ Z Division, the engineering assembly and test support functions of the Manhattan Project. At the end of World War II, Z Division relocated to a site near Albuquerque where it expanded, evolved and ultimately became a separate national laboratory.

Ullrich joined Sandia National Laboratories in 1994 and has been Sandia’s corporate historian since 2003. She directs Sandia’s Corporate Archives and History Program, presents and writes about the lab’s history, supports history exhibit development and provides historic building assessments of the facilities. She has a bachelor’s degree in history from Reed College and did graduate work in history with a specialty in science history at the University of California, Berkeley. All events at the Bradbury Science Museum are free and open to the public. The Bradbury Science Museum is located at 1350 Central Ave. in downtown Los Alamos. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday.
