Before and After Operation Doorstep

On March 17, 1953 the Federal Civil Defense Administration conducted Operation Doorstep at Yucca Flat, Nevada.  It tested the effects of thermal radiation and nuclear blasts on residential buildings and mannequins such as the model family pictured.

This week’s #NPRtbt takes us back to 1981, and features the legendary Susan Stamberg. The Radio Hall of Famer is pictured here with the iconic Mister Rogers on his show, ‘Old Friends… New Friends.’ This is one of many collaborations between the two.
Susan is known as NPR’s ‘founding mother,’ an employee since NPR’s inception in 1971 as National Public Radio. She became one of the first hosts of All Things Considered in 1972, making her the first woman to anchor a national nightly news program. In her ATC days, before she went on-air, Susan would always put on lipstick. Find out why in our interview with Stamberg: NPRInterns.tumblr.com. (at NPR News Headquarters)
