"Now we are all sons of bitches!"

Kenneth Bainbridge; "Trinity" Test Director... Following the fearsomely successful explosion early in the morning of July 16, 1945, he congratulated J. Robert Oppenheimer and the others, then made his legendary remark. Oppenheimer later remarked that this was the best thing anyone had said just after the test. Ken subsequently was deeply dedicated to the control of nuclear weapons.
Welcome to The Atomic Heritage Foundation

Welcome to the Atomic Heritage Foundation!  The Atomic Heritage Foundation (AHF) is a non-profit organization in Washington, DC dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Age. 

{mosimage}In 2006, the Atomic Heritage Foundation took on the mission of the Manhattan Project Heritage Preservation Association (MPHPA), formerly the Children of the Manhattan Project.  To continue the work begun by the MPHPA, we have redesigned and streamlined this website.  It remains the largest repository for primary source material about the Manhattan Project on the web, as well as the largest database of Manhattan Project veterans.  To find material from the previous MPHPA site, please explore the new site through the menu on the left.  The entire MPHPA site is still available by clicking on the "Classic" link. 

For the latest news about our work, please visit the News section.  

For more details on all of our current projects and past accomplishments, visit the Projects page.

If you have any questions or concerns about the new site, please contact

Atomic Story of the Week

Clay Perkins, a retired physicist in Rancho Santa Fe, California, has joined forces with the Atomic Heritage Foundation to preserve the history and historic properties of the Manhattan Project.

He is helping AHF produce a documentary film that will focus on the remaining properties of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos,and most recently has provided the means for the Atomic Heritage Foundation to upgrade and integrate the AHF website and that of the Manhattan Project Heritage Preservation Association. His generosity will make possible the continued development and operation of this site as the best place for the public to search for information about the Manhattan Project and its veterans.
