to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
One of the many construction jobs where I was employed while working
my way through college was the USAF Radar tower installation. During
the summer of 1961, what was then touted as the largest mobile crane in
the Western U.S. was brought in to lift the base for the huge rotating
radar screen onto the top of the largest of the 3 towers (the one completed
earlier in 1961). I am looking for a color photo of the tower after
the huge radar screen had been installed (but before the subsequent installation
of the bubble over the network).
If any of your subscribers and/or readers has such a photo, I would
appreciate hearing from him or her. Thank you in advance. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
