Robert Del Tredici - At Work in the Fields of the Bomb
38. Irma Thomas
St. George, Utah. November 7, 1982. It took Irma Thomas 18 years to realize that the illness in her neighborhood might be connected to atomic fallout. She was one of the first residents of St. George to publicly question government assurances about the safely of its atomic testing program. Since she first spoke out, many have come forward with their concerns and are suing the government for negligence.
