The Minnesota's Legacy logo, reading "Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment"In 1942, the Manhattan Project needed tons of uranium. With only a few grams in existence, there was little hope anyone could achieve such a feat. Harley Wilhelm, a chemistry professor in Iowa, rose to the challenge. Minnesota Book Award-winning author Teresa Wilhelm Waldof reveals the life and times of this unsung hero.

This program is sponsored by Morris Public Library and Viking Library System, funded in part or in whole with monies from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
