Oppenheimer, J. R. (n.d.). Los Alamos Science. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The first step toward a more concerted program of bomb development was the appointment, in June 1942. of J. Robert Oppenheimer from the University of California as Director of the work. By October of 1942, it had been decided that the magnitude of the difficulties involved made necessary the formation of a new project. Even the initial work of providing nuclear specifications for the bomb was seriously hampered by the lack of an organization united in one locality: it was clear that without such an organization the ordnance work would be impossible.
