Facts about Fallout (1955)


The Federal Civil Defense Agency’s (FCDA) Facts about Fallout (Washington: GPO, 1955; SuDOC: FCD 1.2:F 19) is on the Web in a black and white scan at DOE. The actual doc, however, is in color, more vibrant, and compelling than the washed out reproduction. So here’s a fairly decent a scan of the real thing in all of its green, black, and white glory.

The publication is notable for its claims that fallout is “nothing more than particles of matter in the air” and the “whole world is radioactive.”
