A dedication ceremony will take place tomorrow in honor of Colonel Franklin Matthias, the man credited with building Hanford.

It's public recognition for the man who managed the largest construction project of WWII.

A bronze bust of the late Matthias was recenlty installed at the Richland City Library, where the dedication kicks off at 11 a.m.
