Highways to the World

Highways to the World The Engineer, the Teacher & the Dangerous 20th Century KNEESE, Carolyn Calvin

From one Golden Age of Texas highways to another, wrapped around an extended wartime period building the atomic bomb in the secret city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Carolyn Calvin Kneeses father and mother lived near the dangerous heartbeat of the twentieth century. As a child, Carolyn knew little of the engineering work her father did the globe-changing political purposes behind it. Highways to the World is one daughters personal journey into history. Here are striking portraits of events, from small-town Texas childhoods to life as a cadet at Texas A&M after World War I, from the familys rescue by the US Navy during the Suez Crisis in 1956 to overseas aid assignments invariably tied to our nations anticommunist foreign policy. With a tough detectives eye and a loving daughters heart, Carolyn seeks out her parents side-by-side forms in these snapshots from their century.
