Caption: William Rudolph Kanne (died 1985), US physicist. Kanne worked on the Manhattan Project during World War II, helping to develop the first atom bomb. Kanne married in 1937 and worked with his wife at the University of Wisconsin before the war. After the war, he worked for General Electric in Schenectady, New York, USA. Kanne and his wife moved to California in 1958, and he retired from General Electric in 1973. This photograph was taken on 24 May 1963, just prior to the 20th anniversary of the first nuclear chain reaction in 1943. The chart in Kanne's hands shows the flux levels just prior to, and during, this first chain reaction.Restrictions:
