Rickover and the Whale
By Ms. Brewer Thompson
While going through boxes of documents for declassification, we occasionally come across things that are interesting, though unclassified. This comes from Record Group 326: Atomic Energy Commission, entry P 14-B, Subject Files of John McCone, Chairman; box 20 folder 3, O & M 2-2 R Correspondence with Individuals “RICKOVER”. It is a letter from H.G. Rickover to J.A. McCone, reporting on an incident that occurred during the sea trials of the USS Seadragon.
