Totavi is the location of an old construction camp down the hill from Los Alamos. I'm trying to determine if Totavi was established for the Manhattan Project construction in 1943-1945, or came later. There's a great letter and photo on the Totavi page here that almost provides the answer, but I'd like to know a bit more. Some more Totavi lore can be found at http://www.ancestorpages.com/fr_daisy47diary.html, including the suggestion that it was at one tome called Lowdermilk Camp.

Please let me know if you can shed any light on Totavi's early history. In particular, the material on the Totavi page was provided by Gordon Scott and I would like to contact him. If you know how to reach him please pass along my request.

TIA

Gerry
