Dr. Harold M. Agnew
March 28, 1921 - September 29, 2013

Dr. Harold Agnew, a renowned physicist and past director the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory after WWII died Sunday, October 29, 2013 at the age of 92. 

Dr. Agnew flew on the instrumentation flight behind ‘Enola Gay’ on the Hiroshima bomb raid (in a B-29 called ‘Great Artiste’).  He remained active and involved inhis later years, even taking an interest in the Agnews.  His family lore told of antecedants who were stone masons from Scotland but his known line is in Northern Ireland.  In addition to his contribution to science and U.S. policy,  he will be remembered for his quiet sense of humor.
In Memoriam
Dr. G. Marie Agnew-Marcelli      1927-2017

Dr. Marie Agnew-Marcelli, a lifelong scholar, historian and researcher, died in Albany, New York this past May.   She needs no introduction to IAN readers since we have had the benefit of many of her extensively researched and well cited essays covering various topics she wanted to share over the years.   She had an insatiable passion for history and spent her life doing exhaustive research with attention to detailed accuracy.  She never backed down from controversy, in fact she rather rejoyced in it.   Her passion and commitment for truth and accuracy of historical record has been our guidance in the few years we produced IAN.  We shall undoubtedly notice her absence as a source of historical record and debate regarding all things Agnew.
