New downtown facility includes Dorothy McKibbin Conference Center
Longtime Santa Fe resident Dorothy McKibbin (1897–1985) was an unemployed single mother in 1943 when she was offered a secretarial position for an organization known only as “Project Y.” For the next 20 years, McKibbin staffed the now-legendary office, 109 East Palace, the headquarters of the once-secret Manhattan Project, where she became a liaison between Santa Fe and Los Alamos.
