Milton Glass directed the Gila Flats institute leading experiments to show whether atomic power could be controlled.

The Manhattan Project showed how destructive that power could be, but he believed that it should change the world instead.[1] He smoke heavy Turkish cigarettes.[2]

In 1959 he welcomed Jon Osterman to the installation and told Wally Weaver to show him around.[2]

He was present when Jon locked himself in the Intrinsic field subtractor chamber while the genrators warm up for the afternoon experiment. Terrified, he explained that the door the programs lock in and can't override the time-lock.[2]

After the accident that destroyed Jon Osterman, he attempted to reverse the intrinsic field generators to no avail. He then announced the news to Josef Osterman.[1]

He sponsored Dr. Manhattan, after his rebirth. When he became public, he was pressed by a journalist for a quote, and he said "God exists, and he's American" which was later misquoted and toned down as "Superman exists".[3] He was seen photographed outside the Gila Flats with Jon and other officials. He also was present in Washington when Jon shook hands with John F. Kennedy.[2]

His misgivings over the existence of this godlike being led him to write Dr. Manhattan: Super-powers and the Super-powers. He was skeptical whether Dr. Manhattan could be used as a superweapon by the USA; in his book he noted that the arms race inensified, and when cornered, the Soviets would resolve to Mutual assured destruction. He also knew that Manhattan would be unable to destroy all warheads coming from Russia; those left out would be enough to annihilate life in the hemisphere.[3]
