Clay Jenkinson returns as J. Robert Oppenheimer, “Father of the Atomic Bomb”
Clay Jenkinson, one of the most sought-after humanities scholars in the U.S., will portray J. Robert Oppenheimer in an entertaining and thought-provoking program performed in the Chautauqua method at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art on November 16, 2016.
Oppenheimer, known as the father of the atomic bomb, was an enormously complex man. After making important contributions to the science of quantum physics, he was chosen by General Leslie Groves to head up the Manhattan Project in 1942. He performed this monumental task with great administrative genius.
Best known for his award-winning historical impersonation of Thomas Jefferson, and his National Public Radio Jefferson Hour, Jenkinson performed as Teddy Roosevelt last year in a sold-out BI Historical Museum event. Don’t miss this one-night-only event this year.
