Tucson Offices on Forbes Blvd., October 1974

Paul Rhodes and Bill Gust stand at the entrance to the new NRAO Tucson offices on Forbes Blvd. in October 1974. Prior to moving into the Forbes Interstate Industrial Park, where the interior space was specially designed for NRAO (and included NRAO's first shower room - many Tucson employees rode bicycles to work), NRAO had occupied space in the basement of Kitt Peak National Observatory's Tucson offices. Complexity of the equipment and increasing staff numbers meant the limited available KPNO space no longer met NRAO's needs, so the search for new quarters began in 1973. Nineteen NRAO employees moved into the Forbes Blvd. offices in 1974. (GB74-11954.jpg)
