II: Buildings and Grounds
Illinois Governor Otto G. Kerner was one of the first to visit the Zero Gradient Synchrotron (ZGS) at Argonne National Laboratory after its full operating capacity of 12.5 billion electron volts was reached. The governor views a model which shows one of eight sections of the 4,800-ton magnet ring that guides protons around the ZGS as they are accelerated. From left, foreground, Lee C. Teng, Particle Accelerator division director, Governor Kerner Roger Hildebrand, associate laboratory director for High Energy Physics, and George W. Beadle, University of Chicago president. Members of the governor's staff stand in the background.
