00:42:41–00:44:00 Group working to clean up lab consisted...

Group working to clean up lab consisted of four professors and 35 to 40 graduate students, staff people, some undergraduates.

Listen to this section

00:42:41

LS

How many of you were doing this?

RC

Well I was, somewhere along the line I went back to teaching. So I was kind of removed from some of this during the cleanup procedure. But the answer is that all the, the entire effort of the nuclear physics group, which was, at that time, I guess, four, I guess four professors and their students and their post-docs–

LS

Around fifty students?

RC

Probably not quite that high. But I would say thirty to forty, maybe? And the post-docs, plus the sort of staff people who work with the accelerator, which is several. Plus, I guess there were a number of undergraduates who were hired.

LS

Were they actually sweeping out rubble? Or was somebody else doing that?

RC

No. There was a lot of rubble sweeping. The people in nuclear physics wanted to sort of have the main hand in cleaning up their own stuff. They didn’t want some guy with a bulldozer just to come through and plow through it.

LS

Yeah. I can see that.

RC

To make sure we could salvage what we could out of the mess.
