Edward C. Smith - Professor of Aerospace Engineering, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Aerodynamics of the Helicopter

Author: Alfred Gessow and Garry C. Myers, Jr

Book Description:

Prof. Gessow was one of my teachers and advisors in graduate school at the University of Maryland. He served to inspire and encourage his students, and helped imprint us with his love for and fascination with helicopters. I studied from this book as a student, and taught from this book as a faculty member here at Penn State. It was a priviledge to have known him and his family. He passed away a few years ago and I would appreciate the opportunity to honor him in this way.
