Correspondence, field studies, reports, scientific data, photographs, and maps all document the varied research and policy-making career of Pope A. Lawrence, an environmental health scientist with the Public Health Service (PHS) and the Environmental Health Agency (EPA). His papers contain a wealth of primary source research materials and scientific data related to: environmental and industrial hygiene, radon activity, use of beryllium as a rocket propellant, uranium mining, and toxicological, biological and chemical weapon systems, primarily from the 1950s through the 1970s, especially as related to America’s atomic age federal policy.
