Frank Earl Marble (1918-2014) earned his PhD from Caltech in 1948, and remained as GALCIT faculty and active in his research
at Caltech for over fifty years. The Frank E. Marble papers illustrate Marble's contributions to the field of aeronautics
and mechanical engineering, and consist of correspondence, research notes, notebooks, and writings.
Frank Earl Marble was born in Cleveland, Ohio on July 21, 1918. He earned both his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (1940),
and M.S. in Applied Mathematics (1942) from the Case School of Applied Science. In 1946, after earning a pre-doctoral fellowship
from the National Research Council, he and his wife Ora Lee moved to Pasadena to pursue his PhD in Aeronautics and Mathematics
