Everyone who worked on Stretch/Harvest.

We want to find everyone who ever worked on Stretch/Harvest. Most of them were in Poughkeepsie, but others were at Aldermaston, Dahlgren, Livermore, Los Alamos, Mitre, Weather Bureau, etc.

Please look at the list and

The smallest clues can help to narrow down the leads in locating the missing. Here are examples.

Here is a list of sites that offer free searches for people. Before searching for a person, do check the person's contact info to avoid duplicating the efforts of prior, unsuccessful searches.

With ussearch.com there is good news, bad news, good news, and bad news. The most important good news is that it tells you the age of the people it finds. That means you can quickly screen out most of the names that it finds. Unfortunately, it charges a fee for its search results. Fortunately, you can get around this:

  1. Go to switchboard.com, and then click on "public records search".
  2. Go to yahoo.com, and then click on "people search".

Finally, sometimes ussearch will not perform a search because it is too busy, or it may say that it performs only 10 free searches per day.

Thanks to the many people who contributed to developing this list. Special thanks to Ken Tooker for the newsletter he sent out for years recording the whereabouts of many alumni. Chris Larson found an old printout of the newsletter and sent it to us. It added greatly to our list of names. More recently, Chris also found an IBM Poughkeepsie telephone directory from 1962; this has allowed us to find the exact names for a lot of the people who are still listed as missing. And Chris alone has located sixty or seventy of the people on the list. Jeanette Vorhees located most of the Los Alamos people. Charlie A. Allen, Stan Anderson, Steve Behman, Alice Carter, John Carter, Ed Councill, Esther Hunter, Harwood Kolsky, Dick Lamy, George Monroe, Stu Tucker, and Herb Wild recalled long lists of names and dug out multiple addresses.

We suspect that faulty memories have caused some bogus names to be added to the list. Therefore, some names have this query: Does anyone remember this person? If after some time no one has responded, then the name will be dropped.

If you know that someone listed below did NOT work on Stretch, please let us know. We won't disinvite them, but we may not work so hard on finding them either.
