The Rancho Seco oral histories document the story of the, now closed, Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant located in Ione, California. The oral histories present a broad range of perspectives and attitudes. Issues included plant safety; environmental concerns; down time due to technical problems resulting in increased cost to SMUD users; organizational structure and relationship of managers, staff and contractors; closed board meetings; and plant operations that were eventually closed down by voters. Edward A. Smeloff Jr. was a Director with the SMUD board.
