Hoover Marks The Seventieth Anniversary Of “Operation Crossroads” With The Release Of Rare Sound Recordings

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

This week Hoover Library & Archives announces the public release of rare and unique sound recordings that document the July 1946 detonation of nuclear bombs on the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands—one of the most significant events in the history of nuclear energy. The recordings, part of Hoover’s United States Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service records, detail the preparation, process, and aftermath of the nuclear testing known seventy years ago as “Operation Crossroads.” Since the first detonation on July 1, 1946, the Bikini Atoll tests have become emblematic of the dawn of the nuclear age and the beginning of the Cold War.
