Not too long ago, Anne Marie had the opportunity to talk to Emily Strasser. Emily has written a book about a little-known community built in secret by the United States government in rural western Knoxville, Tennessee. Oak Ridge was one of three secret cities constructed by the Manhattan Project. If you listened to last week’s episode about Anna Rosenberg, there is a tie-in here. Anna Rosenberg negotiated a hush-hush deal between then-president Franklyn D. Rosevelt and the tens of thousands of workers attracted to Oak Ridge, eager for the high-paying wartime jobs it offered. If you haven't listened to that episode yet, here is a link to it:
