On the cover: Dr. Naomi Harley demonstrating the apparatus used to obtain a breath radon sample using clean compressed air to eliminate background radon from the sample. This photo from the 1950s was taken at the Atomic Energy Commission's Health and Safety Laboratory located in New York City. See the paper by Ellis et al. for more information.
