Historical Note

The Applied Fisheries Laboratory was created at the University of Washington in 1943. Dr. Lauren R. Donaldson was the first director. In 1946 the laboratory came under the administration of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. The laboratory was charged with the responsibility to develop methods for evaluating the hazards of radiation in and around water used as a cooling agent for atomic energy plants. Its main efforts were directed toward evaluating the effect of the Hanford Nuclear Site on the Columbia River. In 1946 the laboratory began studies of the biological effect of the weapons tested at the Eniwetok Test Site at Bikini and Eniwetok Atolls, and focused on these studies for over twelve years. After a 1954 accident when a weapon detonated at Bikini Atoll and contaminated a Japanese fishing vessel and the Rongelap atoll in the Eastern Marshall Islands, the laboratory studied the contamination of fish in the surrounding waters and on native foods at Rongelap. These studies expanded to include detailed investigations of the ecology of Rongelap. In 1957 the contract with the Atomic Energy Commission was expanded to develop a cooperative laboratory with the state of Washington Department of Game at Fern Lake in Kitsap County.

In 1958 the name of the Applied Fisheries Laboratory changed to Laboratory of Radiation Biology, and in 1966 that name changed to Laboratory of Radiation Ecology. It continued as a division of the Fisheries Research Institute until approximately 1987.

Scope and Content

This record group documents the administration and research projects of the Applied Fisheries Laboratory, later known as the Laboratory of Radiation Biology and then the Laboratory of Radiation Ecology, at the University of Washington. Records include documentation of studies of the Bikini and Eniwetok Atolls, the Marshall Islands, the Columbia River, and Fern Lake, among many other locations. Included are correspondence, reports, writings, subject files, logs, photographs and slides, trip files, convention and conference files, and ephemera.

Restrictions on Access

The records are open to all users; however, access to records that are exempt from public disclosure is restricted. Contact the Special Collections division of the University of Washington Libraries for details.

Restrictions on Use

These are public records; use is unrestricted when access is granted.
