Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Foladare Collection at the Caltech Archives consists of three boxes of materials, all of which date from the Caltech Rocket Project during World War II (1942-46). Included in the first two boxes are technical reports on rocket science and weaponry, and Foladare's memoranda to the report writers regarding the style and structure of their reports. The third box contains the eight monographs on rocket-related subjects that the workers on the rocket project composed in 1946, in fulfillment of Caltech's OSRD contract.
Joseph Foladare was born in Los Angeles on July 9, 1909. He earned his B.S. in Physics from Caltech in 1930, his M.A. in English from Claremont College in 1931, and his Ph.D. in English at Yale in 1936. In 1935, he took a teaching position in the English Department at Iowa State College in Ames. In 1940, he joined Santa Barbara State College (later University of California, Santa Barbara) as an English Professor.
