Med., June 2, 1949, 22 pp. All with illustrations."Hamilton's studies of isotope retention in humans, especially of radioactive strontium and the transuranic elements, were the principal source for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission estimates of tolerance limits of these substances. As part of the Manhattan Project in 1944, he and his research team began studies on the effect of plutonium in rats. In secret trials conducted from 1945 to 1947, they injected plutonium into humans without their informed consent at the University of California Hospital at San Francisco. The human trials, which attempted to find the toxicity of plutonium in the human body, were terminated by the Atomic Energy Commission in 1950." Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
