Nothing keeps this good man down

Charles “Kayo” Murphy, at 88 years young, was at the controls in 1975 the first time AEP’s Cook Nuclear Plant Unit 1 reached “criticality” (a sustained nuclear fission chain reaction), and is still going strong. Murphy retired from AEP in 1988 after a long career at both Cook and the Clinch River Plant.

The Herald-Palladium newspaper in Michigan recently published an interesting story about Murphy’s life and career. Read the story in its entirety.

  1. What a wonderful article about a very good man. He seems to exemplify so many of the dedicated electric utility employees I had the pleasure and privilege to work with for over 30 years in the old Central and South West System.
