Just so—how the Rubys got their name
||1989||Biographical Memoirs||Herbert L. Anderson||John Ray Dunning 1907-1975||
Dunning was the driving force in Columbia's nuclear research program. Anderson recalls the events around the early nuclear fission and uranium enrichment projects at Columbia. A highlight is the full text of Dunning's letter to Alfred Nier requesting U235 sample for testing (important to us because this connection is what brought Rustad to Columbia).
