A-Bomb Survivor Research Being Turned Into Digital Archive

A long-running study of A-bomb survivors is being turned into a digital archive. “In 1949, four years after the atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, American geneticist William Jack Schull travelled to Japan to join a study examining the effects of ionizing radiation on A-bomb survivors. Little did he expect that 68 years later, he would still be associated with the same study. He is now working to share his memories by collating a digital archive based on his time in Japan.”
