Great story on the founding of LLNL.
"Study Recounts Early,
Difficult Years Of Lawrence Livermore National Lab" - The Independent.

I am struck by this, and how its compares today to life at the Lab....
by Lawrence’s legacy from the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory, Livermore
staff were young experimentalists who shifted fluidly between groups as
jobs required. They lacked job titles for the most part – even York, who
led the Livermore site, did not receive the title of Director until
Lawrence suggested it offhandedly in 1954.
perhaps, Lawrence was always upbeat and looking to the future. He would
not allow gloom or despondency. Even after the third failed nuclear
test, he showed up at the Livermore site and told the young scientists
not to despair but to ask what they could learn from the failures."
