Searching for San Francisco Naval Shipyard Workers

The following request was received from Lisa Davis, a reporter for the San Francisco Weekly. She is searching for information for a news project relating the experiences of NRDL decontamination workers.

Subject: San Francisco Naval Shipyard
Date: Thu, 18 May 2000
From: [email protected] (Lisa Davis)


My name is Lisa Davis and I’m a writer in San Francisco. I’m working on a project involving the former Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory at San Francisco Naval Shipyard 1946-1965.

To that end, I am desparately seeking any information about the folks who worked at NRDL or San Francisco Naval Shipyard (Hunter’s Point), or the decontamination of USS Independence and other ships after Bikini.

Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Lisa Davis
