Jerome C. Hunsaker was a senior aeronautical engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, organizing and heading the department there in the 1939 to 1951. He was heavily involved in the development of the science of flight in America for the first three-quarters of the twentieth century, heading NACA and serving on important World War II technical advisory committees. His influence on the history and progress of flight is now seen negatively, in that he discouraged the development of jet and rocket propulsion in the United States before 1945.
