This historic image, provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), depicted a technician wearing a white lab coat, seated at a simulated uranium mine workstation. This test center was located at a Salt Lake City, UT, Public Health Service (PHS), Rockefeller Foundation, International Health Division (IHD) field station. Through a circular portal, he was observing what was transpiring behind a wooden wall. The technician’s right hand was adjusting a valve on a small compressed gas tank.
