  • Handwritten letter from Sherwood Waldron Jr. to LP, RE: Waldron read LP's recent letter to the Times about fallout shelters and is confused. LP stated that essentially no one would survive in a 75,000 square mile area if a 100 megaton bomb was exploded high enough. However, a recent series of civil defense television programs indicated that a 50 megaton bomb would completely destroy a five mile radius, but that no damage would reach people in fallout shelters outside this radius, and that beyond 60 miles one would not expect flash fires. Waldron, a Yale student, is engaged in an attempt to build a shelter under a dormitory, but does not want to raise the necessary funds if, indeed, the fallout shelter would not be effective. Waldron asks for the sources of LP's statistics and asks if LP could suggest an explanation the large discrepancy between his figures and those of the civil defense authorities.
