ORNL Momento

ORNL Oak Ridge National Lab badge

Since my father died, we have been sorting out his belongings and affairs. This week, his brother Wayne sent me one of Wade Dickinson’s prize possessions, his ORNL badge from around 1950. My father attended the School for Reactor Technology at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory near Knoxville, Tennessee, after he was graduated from West Point in 1949. Apparently, this small oval brass badge was used for identification and entry into the facility.  It is engraved with “S-SITE 328”.  My father used to keep it on his key chain.  I hope it is not radioactive!
