Clay And Dorothy Perkins Turn Over Deed Of Hans Bethe House To Los Alamos Historical Society

Clay, center, and Dorothy Perkins turn over the deed of 1350 Bathtub Row Saturday to the Los Alamos Historical Society. Ron Wilkins, left, president of the Historical Society, accepted the deed on behalf of the organization. Always with the intention of donating it, the Perkins purchased the flood-damaged house in 2013 and put in $130,000 worth of repairs and gave $100,000 for exhibits. The Perkins, of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., were good friends with Harold Agnew, third director of Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (now Los Alamos National Laboratory). Known as the Hans Bethe House for the Nobel Prize-winning physicist who once lived there, the historic home will be used as a museum that tells the stories of Los Alamos after World War II, including the Harold Agnew Cold War Gallery.
