Technical activities will be under the direction of Karl Cohen, former director of the atomic energy division of the H. K. Ferguson Company and a scientist with the wartime Manhattan District. The organization has an initial staff of thirty scientists and engineers and has announced plans to expand this group to one hundred during the next year or two.

Report by Bellamy and Moorhouse on Nuclear and Meson Physics International Conference in Glasgow includes summary of Wu’s talk on the interaction in beta decay

Excerpt(s): 

A most stimulating talk on the interaction in beta decay was given by Dr. C. S. Wu. The Fermi and Gamow-Teller components have approximately the same magnitude, and recoil experiments on helium-6 show that the latter is a tensor interaction. Preliminary results on neon-19 recoils suggest that the Fermi interaction is scalar, as favored by other evidence.

Anecdote involving Feynman and Wu at the 1958 APS meeting
Or does the author mean 1957?

Excerpt(s): 

In January 1958 I attended the meeting of the American Physical Society in New York where Wu presented the results of her experiment on parity violation in beta decay of cobalt-60. In a 20 minute talk she described the experiment and announced that the result was that beta-decay indeed violated parity conservation and the combination of amplitudes was S+T, the sum of the scalar and tensor currents.
