A Bit of Middle River History

My father worked on every major project there
by Ed W.

My father, John, worked at Martin Marietta in Middle River. During his tenure, from 1936 to 1973, he worked on every major project there, including the M-130 China Clipper, the B-26, the PBM Mariner, the Martin Mars and the P6M SeaMaster Supersonic Seaplane. He also worked on the early guided missiles Martin developed, as well as the Titan rockets. He loved his job and the company. His Martin ring was buried with my brother in 1987.
