1950s Who's Who

(NASA)

This NASA committee (posing with a hypersonic rocket vehicle at Wallops in October 1958) is like a who’s who of 1950s space engineering. At far right is Wallops director Robert Krieger. Three down from him, with the unbuttoned coat, is Robert Gilruth, who would lead NASA’s manned space program during the 1960s. To his right is hypersonic flight pioneer Harvey Allen, and next to him is Guyford Stever of MIT, who chaired the new agency’s space technology committee.
