Do you know who this SAWE member is?

A gentleman by the name of Bruce Jacobs wrote to the society with a “historical question”.  He found a badge belonging to his grandmother with our name on it.  He was asking if we could supply any information we might have on her.  He only supplied her married and maiden name.
I responded to his email asking the obvious questions of where she worked and approximately when she retired.  His response was that she retired in the early 80’s from Rockwell or Northrop and worked on the space shuttle engine systems in some capacity.
Now comes the fun part—–he also sent a picture of Edna Jacobs Badge he found.  It shows that Edna Jacobs was a member of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Society of Aeronautical Weight Engineers.  Note the 3rd word.  This means the badge was from before we changed our name from Aeronautical to Allied.  This means before 1973!!
If anyone has any more information, Bruce would enjoy reading it.  I do not want to post his email address on the blog for obvious reasons, but I would be more than happy to pass the information to him.
Please respond to Ron Fox (ron.fox@sawe.org) to pass along any information you might have for Bruce, or he can get you in contact with him!

  1. There is a paper in the archives – 850. Automated Method for Calculating Mass Characteristics of Fuel in Tanks at Various Angles of Attack – authored Jacobs, E., and Gholson D. P. published in 1970 and presented at the Washington DC conference that year that may be relevant.
