Biography / Administrative History

Robert T. Jones, one of the premier theoretical aerodynamicists of the twentieth century, was a research scientist with NASA, and its predecessor NACA, from 1934 until his retirement in 1982, when he joined the Stanford faculty as a consulting professor in aeronautics. He is best known for developing the theory of swept and delta wings. He was elected to the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the National Academy of Sciences. Among his other interests were blood flow dynamics, telescopes, and violins. He died in 1999.
