Let's Look Around
Our brief look at Richland's past leads us to
the present. But here too our look must be a quick one,
if only because things move so swiftly here. So much of
importance has taken place that comprehensive, condensed
review is difficult.
It was in August of 1947 that David Lillienthal added
credence to the theme "We're Here To Stay" with his
statements regarding the permanency of the Project.
G.E.'s vigorous President Charles E. Wilson and A.E.C.'s
dynamic Carlton Shrugg provided the spark that touched
off the accelerated tempo of construction. The demand
for construction housing resulted in a new community,
North Richland and expanded housing areas for Richland.
Months of feverish activity followed, Pre-Cut houses were
erected, Hanford barracks were wheeled into place in North
Richland and modern apartment units made their appearance.
Richland's school budget received a shot in the arm with
appropriations doubled. Workers and residents began
Planting 1,700 trees to shield themselves from that center
of energy in the sky, the sun. Here in itself is promise
of faith in the future.
