    Description

    Hiroshima and Nagasaki Photo, Letter, and Signature Archive. Eight autograph letters signed by participants in World War II's atomic bomb drops headline this historic group. The letters, written between 1987 and the early 2000s, are variously addressed to "Mr. Warren" or "Ralph". Included are letters by flight commanders Paul Tibbets of the Enola Gay and Chuck Sweeney of Bockscar. There are also two autographed photocopies of 1940s documents signed by Dutch Van Kirk and Frederick Ashworth. Signed photos include one of the Manhattan Project's Edward Teller and a Project Alberta group shot signed by Lawrence Johnston, Frederick Ashworth, Harold Agnew, and Norman Ramsey. The items in the lot are in fine to very fine condition.
