Background

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 at Caltech.
