Eyewitness to the Race to Space

My first and only job became the most amazing career
by Anthony A.

After college graduation in 1957 from the University of Scranton, I took my first and only job with the Glen L Martin Company in Middle River, Maryland. Initially, I worked on the Mace missile program. Later, I traveled to the Marshall Islands on the PRIME lifting-body spacecraft program where we air-recovered the spacecraft. I returned to Middle River and was assigned in 1967 to open an office in Huntsville, Alabama. There, we worked on both the Gemini and Space Shuttle programs. I retired in Huntsville in 1993. It was a wonderful and exciting career!
