... J. Robert Oppenheimer (cartoon)

 ... it seems that the mysterious 'J' at the front of his name actually stood for Julius. When asked about it he would laugh and tease that it "stood for nothing!" Did he think it sounded too Jewish for a 1940's America and the man in charge of the biggest most expensive government project in history? 

Or maybe he just didn't like the name Julius?                                      LINK
