It was 65 years ago this month--on Aug. 26, 1931--that the University of California permitted a young physicist named Ernest Orlando Lawrence to set up his research in a modest wooden structure on the Berkeley campus. They called it the "Radiation Laboratory," recognizing Lawrence's seminal work on the cyclotron.
To celebrate that historic event, and to pay tribute to Lawrence and those who followed him in establishing the remarkable legacy that Berkeley Lab enjoys today, a week of special activities has been scheduled for Aug. 26-30. They include an exhibition of rare scientific artifacts and a series of noontime talks that promise to recapture the history and impact of the Laboratory and its work.
On the actual founding day of Monday, Aug. 26, Nobel Laureate and Lab Director-at-Large Glenn Seaborg will initiate the week-long tribute with a discussion of the early decades of the Laboratory and his role in it, including the discovery of 10 transuranic elements. His talk, like those to follow each day at noon, will take place in the Bldg. 50 Auditorium.
Also that day, from 3 to 5 p.m., an exhibition of memorabilia from Laboratory archives and personal collections will be officially opened in the Bldg. 50 lobby, which is being remodeled as a permanent exhibit area. Among the treasured items will be Dr. Lawrence's original desk, Dr. Seaborg's personal log notes recording his discovery of plutonium, a four-inch version of the original Lawrence cyclotron, and varied instrumentation from Berkeley Lab scientific achievements. A graphic timeline and numerous historic photos will adorn the walls. The Laboratory community will be invited to a reception to mark the opening and the anniversary date, to be held in the Bldg. 50 upper parking lot.
Tuesday's noon event will feature archival film footage from the days of the Bevatron and the building of the 184-Inch Cyclotron, plus popcorn and soft drinks sold at 1931 prices.
On Wednesday, Berkeley Lab's three living directors will reminisce about the Lab's modern evolution. Current Director Charles Shank will moderate the discussion, which will feature Andrew Sessler talking about the '60s and '70s, and David Shirley highlighting the '80s. Sessler, who served as director from 1973 to 1980, is still on the Lab staff. Shirley, director from 1980 to 1989, is senior vice president for research and dean of the graduate school at Pennsylvania State University.
Thursday's speaker will be Martha Krebs, formerly an associate laboratory director at Berkeley Lab and now head of the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Research. Krebs, who will be here to preside over the annual on-site review of Laboratory programs, will offer observations about the Lab's past, present and future. A special 65th anniversary dinner will be held in the cafeteria on Thursday evening.
Nuclear medicine will be the theme for Friday, Aug. 30. The Society of Nuclear Medicine has recognized 1996 as the 100th anniversary of nuclear medicine. Tom Budinger of the Life Sciences Division will recall Berkeley Lab's pioneering role in the field in his noontime talk. Later in the day, the Lab's new Biomedical Isotope Facility, a centerpiece for the Center for Functional Imaging, will be dedicated in a ceremony to which all Lab employees are invited.
Anniversary Week will be capped with a commemorative edition of Currents, featuring memorable photos and recollections from Berkeley Lab's rich and colorful history.

CSEE is a major supporter of the Brookdale Discovery Center, which has been described as a "homemade, hand-me-down, mini-Exploratorium." Located at 2521 High St., the center was once a symbol of urban blight--a boarded-up abandoned house in a neighborhood where such places often become crack houses. Through a neighborhood effort led by local resident Rich Bolecek, the building was purchased by the city of Oakland with federal funds, and fixed up by student volunteers from Castlemont High School. It is now a hands-on science workshop that officially opened on July 13.
The Inland Whale Project is the first of a number of student workshops at the Brookdale Center that CSEE will be sponsoring through the Bay Area Science and Technology Education (BASTEC) Collaboration, a partnership with the Oakland Unified School District. CSEE's Eileen Engel heads this effort. The whale project is a program CSEE established for the Lawrence Hall of Science as a means of encouraging science teachers to work with their students.
CAPTION: Above, children in Oakland's Allendale neighborhood help inflate a life size model of a blue whale at the Brookdale Discovery Center. At right, children peer at each other through the transparent belly of the whale. The project was sponsored by Berkeley Lab's Center for Science and Engineering Education.
Charych will discuss a relatively new approach towards the synthesis of new materials which look to nature for inspiration. New polymeric materials have been developed with tailored biological activity that resemble the structure and function of biological membranes. The polymer backbone imparts a deep blue color to the materials which changes to red in response to the specific binding of biological targets such as viruses. These materials could be used as simple home or office sensing devices to diagnose various diseases, including the flu.
Charych received her doctorate in chemistry from UC Berkeley in 1992. She received a Division of Materials Sciences Award from DOE in 1993 for her research.
Berkeley Lab's ambitious "necessary and sufficient" process for establishing a new set of focused safety standards is in the midst of its most intense phase. Teams of experts are combing the existing documentation and spot-checking the site to characterize the work done at the Lab and its associated hazards.
"Necessary and sufficient" was the vision of Tara O'Toole, DOE Assistant Secretary for Environmental Safety and Health, as part of the administration's "reinventing government" campaign. The term addresses the need to follow all standards deemed "necessary" by law and "sufficient" to assure adequate protection of the safety and health of the employees, the public, and the environment. Berkeley Lab is the first multi-program energy research lab to apply the system site-wide, though its National Tritium Labeling Facility was part of a successful pilot project last year.
According to process leader Ben Feinberg, operations head of the Advanced Light Source, "integrated functional appraisal" teams of about a half-dozen members each are building a work hazards inventory, a critical step in the development of EH&S standards that will guide the Laboratory's compliance program in the future.
"We want to have an understanding of what the real hazards are, rather than starting with the presupposition that an order of compliance is required," Feinberg said. That's the essence of this exercise--to boil down myriad regulations and orders, many of them redundant or inappropriate for Berkeley Lab, to those uniquely applicable to the work here.
Officials predict at least a 30-percent reduction in costs and workload, with greater accountability and enhanced safety.
Once the analysis teams have completed their work, an "Identification Team" made up of Lab and DOE safety experts will step in to identify the standards and requirements applicable site-wide. Four "activity sub-teams" will identify standards within functional areas: accelerator and fixed radiation sources, environmental protection, facilities and infrastructure, and laboratory safety. The core Identification Team then will sort out the material, ensure there is no duplication, and draft a set of proposed standards by Sept. 2.
"At this point, it's important to gather as much input as we can from the Laboratory community," Feinberg said. "Which rules or standards in environment, health and safety are people following that impede or hinder them from doing their jobs? Which activities don't add value?"
The answers may be forwarded to Feinberg or Cynthia Tilden via memo or e-mail, or contributors may visit the new "Necessary and Sufficient" Internet site, accessible via the Lab's Home Page ("Our Workplace" button, to "Laboratory Support Services") on the World Wide Web. The new Web site includes relevant regulatory documents and policies, plus linkages to related sites.
On Wednesday, the Laboratory held the first of two meetings to inform "stakeholders"--that is, members of the public with special interests in Lab activities, such as regulators and community representatives--about the process and solicit their comments. The second meeting will be held when draft standards are completed.
A review, which includes researchers from the Laboratory and specialists from DOE-Oakland, is followed by a vigorous confirmation process using experts from industry, universities, and other DOE labs. These teams will review and refine the standards prior to their adoption in early November.
"This process is our window of opportunity to change the standards under which we're working, to remove the non-value-added activities," Feinberg said.
The project is spearheaded by the Teacher-Scientist Alliance Institute (TSAI) of the American Physical Society, a group that mobilizes scientists to support a hands-on, inquiry-centered approach to science teaching. The workshop is organized by the Oakland TSAI team and sponsored by TSAI-APS, Berkeley Lab, and the Oakland Unified School District, among others.
Workshop participation is limited to 40 people and registration is encouraged. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Harper Building at 314 10th Street in Oakland. Lunch will be provided. For more information, contact Peggy McMahan (X5980; email@example.com).
In an age when home and office work schedules seem increasingly hectic, Rachel McGee's way of coping might seem impossible--she does extensive volunteer work. Despite her job as a project administrator in the Facilities Department, not to mention her role as a mother, McGee has devoted years of volunteer work to the American Red Cross, winning recognition from the organization in a special citation for exceptional service.
She began volunteering with the Red Cross in 1989 following the Loma Prieta earthquake. "They put me right to work at an emergency shelter set up at Oakland Tech," she said. "I helped with meals, distributing clothing, and directing people to other agencies." Afterwards, she started taking classes in emergency care, mass care, and shelter administration.
Following the 1991 Oakland hills firestorm, her full-time assistance was needed as a Red Cross case worker, and the Laboratory granted her a week off to counsel families on trauma issues and emergency services available to them. Her involvement has since grown to include outreach and workshops for disaster preparedness.
McGee is now the Red Cross' disaster education coordinator for West Contra Costa County, and is on-call weekends and one week per month for the Disaster Action Team. She appeared recently on KECG-FM's ParentTalk Radio to discuss earthquake preparedness for families with small children.
McGee's more recent emergencies have been Richmond-area fires. After arriving at the disaster scenes, she generally counsels fire victims and distributes "comfort kits" and food and hotel vouchers until more permanent housing can be arranged.
Maintaining a sense of balance has been essential to McGee's success at work, home, and in her volunteer duties, she says. "All these are important to me, but I do make sure to rest when I need to. And I have become quite skilled in managing my time."
In addition to her work at the Lab and with the Red Cross, much of McGee's time is spent raising her two teenage daughters. To help one daughter through recovery from surgery, she recently took a month of family leave.
McGee also devotes time to Lab-related volunteer activities such as Bodyworks, an on-site exercise class. She is helping to coordinate this year's Family Picnic at Waterworld, and serves on the Daughters-to-Work Day Steering Committee and the Employee Activities Association Advisory Panel.
"In helping, I've offered comfort, advice and supplies to people, but I also feel responsive to a higher calling in doing so," she says. "It's good to know the things that really do help people when they really need it most."
