Antoine Marc Gaudin

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Antoine Marc Gaudin was born in Smyrna, Turkey back in 1900.  His father was a railroad general manager so the family moved quite frequently.  By the time he finished school he was fluent in English, Greek, and French.  He attended universities in Paris and Aix-en-Province receiving his bachelor’s degree in engineering.

In 1926, he became an American citizen and taught at the University of Utah, while working with the U.S. Bureau of Mines. In 1939, he assumed a professorship at MIT, teaching there for over 25 years.  He retired in 1966 and died in Boston, Massachusetts in 1974.

What you may not know about Antoine is that during WWII, he secretly led an MIT team extracting uranium from low-grade ore for the Manhattan Project, for the development of the atomic bomb.

There were so many men and women who work covertly on the Manhattan project. It was one of the best kept secrets of WWII.
I hope you have a great Saturday  James Dray

Antoine certainly contributed mightily to the US during WWII. I would assume that extracting uranium is a very dangerous job & takes a lot of skill to do it safely.
