Description Transcript (31 pages) of interview by Samantha Senda-Cook with Mary Dickson on July 16, 2009
Abstract Dickson (b. 1955) was born in Joplin, Missouri. She moved with her family to Salt Lake City, Utah, as a child and has spent the majority of her life in the Salt Lake Valley. Dickson discusses her experiences being diagnosed with thyroid cancer before the age of 30 and losing a sister to cancer. She believes that both her and her sister's illnesses were caused by exposure to nuclear fallout while living in Salt Lake. As an activist and playwright, Dickson works to increase awareness of the harm done to human health and the environment by governmental nuclear tests and to prevent future testing that could incur more damage. Interview is part of the Nuclear Technology Oral History Project. Interviewer: Samantha Senda-Cook
