Did You Know?

A constant worry amongst the upper echelons of the Manhattan Project  was how far along the Germans were in developing their own atomic weapon.  During the early years of the war, very little useful information was obtained by "spies" working behind enemy lines.  However, in 1944, General Groves launched the "ALSOS Project" which was designed to capture Hitler's atomic scientists, scientific records, and uranium stockpiles as the Allied Armies began their thrust into Europe.
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

The Atomic Heritage Foundation has received a $350,000 grant primarily to prepare exhibits for Hanford's historic B Reactor, which supporters are working to save for a museum. The foundation hopes to have the exhibits finished in time for the 65th anniversary in 2008 of the Manhattan Project at the Hanford nuclear reservation.
