Major T. H. Rittner

British military officer and scientist-herd, Major Rittner had charge over the German scientists taken by ALSOS, first to Versailles and thence to Farm Hall, Huntingdonshire. He was responsible for reports to Eric Welsh, a naval intelligence officer, and to Michael Perrin. Thomas Powers says Rittner took Otto Hahn aside to tell him privately that his discoveries had led to the development and use of the first atomic bomb. The scientists' keeper also offered Hahn gin and comfort.
