El Rancho de las Golondrinas - Winter Lecture Series

El Rancho de Las Golondrinas presents their Annual Award Winning Winter Lecture Series with Alan Carr and his lecture "Manhattan Project Spies at Los Alamos".

During the Manhattan Project, four Los Alamos insiders stole secret information and provided it to the Soviet Union. This is the story of their treachery: what they stole, why they committed espionage, and what happened to them. The “I Love New York” edition includes newly uncovered information pertaining to Oscar Seborer, who was publicly confirmed as a spy in September 2019.

Alan B. Carr currently serves as a Program Manager and the Senior Historian for Los Alamos National Laboratory. During his tenure as a Laboratory historian, which began in 2003, Alan has produced several publications and lectures pertaining to the Manhattan Project, nuclear testing history, and the historical evolution of LANL. He has lectured for numerous professional organizations and has been featured as a guest on many local, national, and international radio and television programs. Before coming to Los Alamos, Carr completed his graduate studies at Texas Tech University.
