100 YEARS OF BOY SCOUTING

Atomic City Tours :: Los Alamos Historical Tours Fuller Lodge
2018 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of Boy Scout Troop 22 at the exclusive Los Alamos Ranch School. The resort-like campus of 50+ buildings on the remote Pajarito Plateau made it attractive as the isolated place for developing atomic weaponry, if it could be done. Project Y director J. Robert Oppenheimer DID NOT attend the Ranch School, but knew about it from vacationing and horse-riding in New Mexico as a young scientist. He and Manhattan Engineer District commander, Gen. Leslie Groves, chose this inspiring location. The school closed when it was bought out by the Manhattan Engineer District, and when the personnel of secret project arrived, some with young families in tow, the Troop 22 charter was continued with scientist Jack Aeby and former Ranch School staff Bences Gonzales recruited as leaders. Come and learn more, much more.
