President Kennedy's AEC Briefings

Seaborg Briefs Kennedy

Dr. Seaborg and President Kennedy at the Atomic Energy Commission headquarters building in Germantown MD on February 16, 1961. Dr. Seaborg's comments on this photo: "I briefed President Kennedy on the fundamentals of atomic structure and nuclear structure. Here I am briefing him. I must say he was a pretty apt pupil. He seemed to understand pretty well what I was trying to tell him. In fact, he was a much better pupil than some of the other Presidents that I worked for in trying to understand these things."
