Interesting story, isn't it? I mean, who hasn't lost things with never an explanation? But hydrogen bomb secrets -- in 1953? That takes the cake.

Wheeler has a brief discussion of this episode in his book "Geons, Black Holes & Quantum Foam." There he writes that the section of the report he had with him (and lost) was concerned with use of lithium-6 in the hydrogen bombs. He says we later learned that the Soviets already were on the same tack.
