1999 in Los Alamos

The lawyer Steward Udall was appointed the 37th Secretary of the Interior of the USA by John F. Kennedy after four terms in Congress. Afterwards he supported the victims of the nuclear industry in their fight for compensation. The turning point came in 1978, when he learned how the radioactive fallout from the bomb tests at the Nevada test site caused people in the surrounding area to fall ill and die. He received the NFFA for his life's work.
