Edited by Robert Bauman and Robert Franklin
The first volume in the new Hanford Histories series, Nowhere to Remember highlights life in Hanford, White Bluffs, and Richland—three small, close-knit eastern Washington agricultural communities—until 1943, when the Manhattan Project forced a permanent, mandatory evacuation. Early chapters cover settlement and development, examining the region’s past within the context of American West history. Utilizing oral histories drawn from the Hanford History Project archives held at Washington State University Tri-Cities, the volume also details the tight bonds between residents, women’s early twentieth century experiences, removal stories, and reactions to the loss.
