Scope and Contents:
This collection covers von Karman's life, but the core of the collection is records relating to: his career in Germany after World War I; materials pertaining to his assocation with such organizations as the Daniel Guggenheim Fund for the Promotion of Aeronautics, the National Advisory Committee on Aviation, the United States Air Force, and the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics; and personal and scientific correspondence with colleagues and students from around the world.
Biographical / Historical:
Theodore von Karman (1881-1963) was an accomplished physicist, aerodynamicist, applied mathematician, and science advisor. Born in Hungary, von Karman received a degree in mechanical engineering from The Royal Joseph Technical University, and a doctor's degree from The University of Gottingen. In 1930, von Karman was appointed as professor of aeronautics, director of the Daniel Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the Califonia Institute of Technology, and director of the Daniel Guggenheim Airship Institute at Akron Ohio. He was a founding member of the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences and was the recipient of many awards, including the U.S. Medal of Merit and the first U.S. National Medal of Science.
