Baker BrothersBaker Brothers

Baker Brothers is an AWE facility for 1943-1994 and 1996 and a DOE facility for 1995 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims for the AWE years and Part B and Part E claims for the DOE years.

Baker Brothers has a Special Exposure Cohort  for all workers with specific cancers and with at least 250 days employment from June 1, 1943 through December 31, 1944.

Under subcontract to the Manhattan Engineer District (MED), Baker Brothers, Inc., machined and shaped natural (neither enriched or depleted) uranium from processed uranium metals for both the Clinton Semi- Works in east Tennessee and the Hanford nuclear reactor complex in the state of Washington. The estimated amount of material machined at the Toledo Site was between 90 and 300 tons. The primary radioactive material of concern  was uranium-238. After the subcontract with MED was terminated in 1944, the site was decontaminated and determined to be in compliance with guidelines in effect at that time. In 1944, Baker Brothers assets were liquidated and the property was sold.

 The Baker Brothers Site is located at 2551–2555 Harleau Place in Toledo at the intersection of Harleau Place and Post Street. The site consists of several buildings and grounds situated approximately 0.25 mile east of Interstate Highway 75 and 0.25 mile west of State Route 24. The site includes four buildings with saw-tooth roofs and concrete floors.

Baker Brothers is classified as a AWE and DOE site so workers are eligible for both Part B and Part E compensation.
