'Very Secret Work in France' photo taken in a house on the outskirts of Etain, France, the location of a US 19th Tactical Air Command P-47 air base. C. A. Fowler (B.S. '42), left, helped set up a radar landing system at the base. Fowler was then involved in the development of the system at the MIT Radiation Lab. He later became senior vice president of Mitre Corporation, and is now a private consultant. Many faculty and students left the Department during that war to serve at Rad Lab and other defense laboratories, leaving only a small crew of instructors at Urbana to teach a large and transient group of military personnel. Man on right possibly E. M. Albrecht. From Physics News UIUC 1990.
