In Search For 'Miss Atomic Bomb'

The famous 1957 photograph of Miss Atomic Bomb, a smiling Las Vegas showgirl in a mushroom cloud bathing suit with her arms outstretched to the sky, has often been used as representative of Cold War kitsch and a symbol of the bizarre love affair Las Vegas had with the Bomb in the 1950s.

But whatever happened to Miss Atomic Bomb? That is a question Robert Friedrichs of the National Nuclear Security Administration has been working on for the last couple of years. CONELRAD's Missing Persons Bureau has volunteered to help Mr. Friedrichs spread the word of his quest.
