Presentation on 1950 crash of B-36 bomber in British Columbia

Norman Leach has sent me a press release with respect to an upcoming lecture series of his concerning an interesting aspect of Canada's military history. As the release notes:
In recognition of the 60th anniversary of the Feb 14, 1950, crash of the U.S. B36 bomber in the Kispiox, north of the Hazeltons, the Bulkley Valley Museum is hosting a lecture tour by the celebrated Canadian historian, author and U. of Calgary lecturer, Norman Leach, who has written the seminal account of this aviation disaster, "Broken Arrow - America's First Lost Nuclear Weapon". Norman will give a lecture on the crash of the B36 and the controversy of its Fat Man atomic bomb payload at 7:00 pm on Saturday, Feb 13th, at the Old Church. [...] will escort Norman to speak in high schools, libraries and museums between Houston and Terrace. This is all part of the BV Museum's policy of putting the spotlight on our engrossing local history.
