I worked there in 1956

I worked at that plant, however, they must have dressed it up because it was an ordinary red brick building.
I only worked in the summer months before they shut it down temporarily because the screening was falling
into the clay and when the pellets were in the furnace started blowing up. Therefore, the department
was closed and I went back to school. I can't remember signing anything about confidentiality.
I loaded the pellets in the rods with bare hands. They didn't have any fancy garb or anything.
