Over 60 years, safety mindset has changed at AEDC

A photograph is still pinned up on a wall in AEDC’s Model Shop today from when John Hill, left, and Alvin D. Overman, second from left, received an ARO award. Overman and Hill died in 1971 after they entered a confined space in the Model Shop area, not knowing argon gas had leaked inside. The date on the picture indicates it was taken almost exactly a year before they died. (Photo by Rick Goodfriend)
