Description Transcript (4 pages) of an in-person interview conducted by Anthony Sams with Kevin Kinker in Moab, Utah on May 20, 2019. Kinker talks about his late girlfriend, Andrea Gentry, who was born in Richfield, Utah in 1952 and grew up on a farm drinking its cows' milk, which was suspected as the cause of radiation poisoning. Gentry's mother became ill and died in mid 1980s, and Gentry was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995 and died when she was 45 years old in 1999. Kinker himself worked in St. George in 1978 and remembered hearing news about nuclear testing after working outside on a windy day in 1983 or 1984.
