Frances Dunne wasn’t sure where or when she was born. Even now, nearly 30 years after her death, much of her life remains a mystery, but her work on the top-secret Manhattan Project is well documented.

Whether turning dials on big machines or crunching huge mathematical calculations, the women knew they were contributing to the “war effort” but did not know they were assisting in the making of an atomic bomb.
That is not the case with Charlotte Serber, who had an important
