FH 104, page 8: Henry Crooks writes: “For the record, re Gerald McCue’s account of the CockcroftWalton ‘atom-splitting,’ the result of this work was given by Ernest Rutherford at the Royal Society on 20 April 1932—not 1933.”

Our Alaska Conference Schedule posted separately to members declared that Japan had attacked Dutch Harbor, Alaska, on 3 June 1941, sparking Dr. Brooks Hoffman of Stamford, Connecticut to remind us that the attack was in 1942, not 1941. We got this from Anchorage Museum of History and Art, which listed 1941 as the date in a description of a film on the subject. We both stand corrected. -JWM
