History notes:

This collection of transparencies was used by representatives of the Atomic Energy Commission (A.E.C.) during a presentation before the Alaska House State Affairs Committee, April 4, 1970, in Juneau. At the time of the presentation, the A.E.C. was planning a second underground nuclear test on Amchitka Island in 1971, code-named CANNIKIN. Testimony was heard from several groups against a second test as well as adverse testimony about the first test which took place in October, 1969 and was code named MILROW.

From the description of U.S. Atomic Energy Commission slide collection [graphic] : charts, maps, graphs and area views relating to underground nuclear testing on Amchitka Island, ca. 1969-1970. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 60570868
