TI-Correspondence Course in Nuclear Physics Available, 1948

Correspondence Course in Nuclear Physics Available:
The Bureau of Naval Personnel offers a correspondence course entitled “Elementary Nuclear Physics” (NavPers 10775 ).

TI-Medical Problems of Modern Warfare and Civil Disaster 3 April 1959

Medical Problems of Modern Warfare and Civil Disaster

For many generations, the medical profession and the allied medical sciences have been involved in the seemingly endless task of dealing with man’s adaptation to the environment in which he lives. In the past, the environment has consisted in the main of natural forces, such as climate, food, water, shelter, protective clothing, reproduction of the species, and a liberal admixture of worship and fear. Now, with the advent of industrialization of so many parts of the world, new forces in the production of traumatic injury to man, including the onslaughts of biological effects, have been encountered. Radiation energy, a force having phenomenal biological and physiological implications, was destined to have a profound effect, not only on the lives of men, but on all mankind and his environment as well.
