Dedication ceremonies were held on September 14 at Harvard University, the site of the new 6‐BeV accelerator which was designed and built, and is now being operated, as a joint project of Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with the support of the Atomic Energy Commission. The accelerator first went into operation on March 7 with an initial beam of 2.2‐BeV electrons. On August 13 it achieved the maximum energy for which it was designed, producing a beam of 6 BeV. The principal speaker at the dedication was Leland J. Haworth of the Atomic Energy Commission, who was one of a large delegation of distinguished scientists and government officials on hand for the ceremonies.
