One of the goals of this site and the Atomic Heritage Foundation is to help people find out more about the 600,000 men and women who worked on the Manhattan Project. If you would like us to add a profile or if you have more information about a Manhattan Project veteran, please contact us. We are currently in the process of adding thousands of profiles and photographs from the now-defunct MPHPA website.
Some profiles include a detailed description of the person's life and work, while for others all the information we know is their name and Manhattan Project location. We have also included profiles of early nuclear pioneers, Manhattan Project experts, and German scientists who worked on Nazi Germany’s efforts to develop the bomb.
You can use the filters to search for Manhattan Project veterans, women scientists, engineers, spouses of Manhattan Project workers, and more. Learn more.
Kattie Strickland was part of the janitorial staff at Oak Ridge during the Manhattan Project. Unlike the white women whom she worked along side, Ms. Strickland lived in a hut and was prohibited from sharing living quarters with her husband, who also worked on the project.
