A chair with a unique history. Marked with a sticker bearing the initials USAEC/UCLRL the chair can be traced to the United States Atomic Energy Commission (1946) / University of California Lawrence Radiation Laboratory that was founded in 1931. "The USAEC was in charge of developing the U.S. nuclear arsenal, taking over these responsibilities from the wartime Manhattan Project. The UCLRL was at one point the office of J. Robert Oppenheimer (the father of the atomic bomb). In its first decade, the USAEC oversaw the operation of Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, devoted primarily to weapons development, and in 1952, the creation of a new second weapons laboratory in California, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The USAEC also carried out the "crash program" to develop the hydrogen bomb (H-bomb). The chair is an early edition fiberglass chair produced by Zenith Plastics. It is mounted on its original scholastic stacking base. Item is in excellent vintage condition with minor signs of wear consistent with age and use. Sold on an as-is-where-is basis.
