"In August 1931, Ernest O. Lawrence acquired a disused civil engineering laboratory on the Berkeley campus of the University of California to house his first large cyclotron. This old wooden building and its successors became the citadel of the cyclotroneers: their places of initiation into the new art, their armory of high energy, the command post of their missions."
--LBL Newsmagazine, Fall 1981
Ernest O. Lawrence, Nobel Laureate and founder of Berkeley Lab, is said to be the father of "Big Science." This publication, which describes the momentous and historic Lawrence years here, could be said to be a product of "Big Publishing." Originally published by the Lab's Public Information Department in 1981 upon the 50th Anniversary of the Lab, the Web edition represents a state-of-the-art demonstration project that combines the contributions of writers, historians, webmasters, and computer scientists. These richly illustrated files derive their photographs and elements of their formatting from the Lab's Image Library, an online image collection that is being developed by the Lab's Imaging and Distributed Computing Group.
