The USAF Scientific Advisory Board : Its First Twenty Years, 1944- 1964
One of the highest compliments a USAF research and engineering officer can receive on his work is that it met the standards of "the Arnold-von Karman tradition." This allusion epitomizes objectivity of inquiry and thoroughness and excellence of performance. This documented narrative traces that proud tradition from its genesis through the twentieth anniversary of its creator and most zealous guardian-the Scientific Advisory Board to the Chief of Staff and Secretary of the Air Force. Hopefully, the work will serve as both testimonial and concise source book on the invaluable contribution which this dedicated and uniquely skilled companion-in-arms has made to the cause of American aerospace supremacy.
