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.
