Groves & Oppenheimer

An unlikely pair with vastly differing backgrounds, Dr. Robert Oppenheimer and General Leslie Groves, by all accounts, quickly arrived at a mutual respect, each recognizing the invaluable contribution of the other to the enormous, vastly important task of guiding the Manhattan Project. Both were known to be extremely intelligent, demanding and even arrogant and dismissive of those failing to live up to their high standards. Despite these tendencies, they were successful in their goals and consistently praised by those who had worked under them.
