Summary

2013 Historically Speaking is the eighth annual volume of historical articles published in The Oak Ridger newspaper. Like others in this series, the weekly stories vary from purely historical event stories such as "The Graphite Reactor, Isotopes and a new element" to human interest stories such as ""Coach Gaddis and the 'Penny Lady.'" Both of these tell stories about different aspects of Oak Ridge life. There are stories of Lester Fox and his buses, Lee Russell's identification of the purpose of the "Y chromosome" to the history of Oak Ridge as seen by Bobby Copeland, one of the many people in Oak Ridge who are international experts. Bobby is an expert on "B Westerns!" Stories of Oak Ridge include the latest book to be published on Oak Ridge, "The Girls of Atomic City," by Denise Kiernan. There is a series on the history of Wheat from Sarah Littleton's perspective. I was pleased to capture these details of Oak Ridge history and am glad to bring them to you in this annual book form.
