    Seeking reports from Captain Rickover's trips to Albany, Oregon

    Tai Stith Wayfarer

      Then-Captain Hyman Rickover quickly and quietly made trips to Albany, Oregon between 1948—early 1950's to confer with Dr. William J. Kroll at the U.S. Bureau of Mines (Northwest Electro development Laboratory) regarding zirconium production (and later, hafnium production) in the construction of the USS Nautilus. I am seeking any information regarding these trips, or correspondence between Rickover and the USBM in Albany during these years.
