Nov. 17, 1945: The Association of Los Alamos Scientists will hold a public meeting, the first of its kind, Nov. 26 at the Laboratory of Anthropology, Willard Hougland, assistant director of the Lab, said today.
Nov. 17, 1970: Gov. David F. Cargo and Gov.-elect Bruce King conferred in Cargo’s office Monday following King’s appearance at the Legislative Finance Committee (LFC) hearing where the governor’s budget was reviewed.
