A history without the names of outstanding participants-Columbus, Cortez,
Drake-would loose color, yet too many names would destroy the effect. The proper
balance in this account is elusive because of the team effort required in the critical ex-
periments that play a central role. The senior member of a team could not act alone and
so should not be singled out for credit, which seems to leave the choice between all
names and none. I have selected the latter course at the sacrifice of color, but have
moderated it some by naming those who appear in illustrations, the authors in an ex-
tensive list of unclassified publications (Appendix A), and the administrators of the
Groups that have been at Pajarito Canyon (Appendix B).
Of the many who have helped reconstruct this history, several names stand out.
Raemer Schreiber supplied the personal touch that I missed during the years before
1949; in particular he wrote Appendix C on critical-assembly guidelines. Roderick
Spence of the Geosciences Division and Keith Davidson of the Materials Technology
Group provided records and recollections of the Rover Program. And Walter Bramlett
and Pres Martinez of the LASL Records Center have unearthed much of the remaining
information needed to correct my hazy recollections.
