The Brookhaven National Laboratory, at Upton, Long
Island, is operated under a contract with the Atomic Energy
Commission by a non-profit corporation, called Associated
Universities, Inc., incorporated under the Education Laws
of the State of New York. This corporation consists of
representatives of the following nine northeastern uni-
versities: Cornell University, Columbia University, Har-
vard University, The Johns Hopkins University, Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology, University of Pennsylvania,
Princeton University, University of Rochester, and Yale
During the preliminary period of planning, before
funds were available for the Laboratory on a Letter Con-
tract, the expenses incurred by the Initiatory University
Group of these universities and later by the corporation
were defrayed through contracts held by Columbia Univer-
sity with the War Department and later with the Atomic
Energy Commission. This report is the final report on
these contracts, W-7405-eng-50, W-31-109-eng-15, and
AT-30-l-GEN-71. It covers the work of founding the La-
boratory through January 31, 1947.
Here’s what’s next.
