Ludwig Bruggemann was born in 1938 in the agricultural community of White Bluffs, Washington. His father owned a prosperous fruit farm along the Columbia River before the U.S. government forced the family, including Ludwig and his sister Paula Bruggemann, to relocate in 1943 to make way for construction of the Hanford Site.
