Someone Met John B. Lathrop FIB (#foundinbook)

While weeding in my library’s engineering section yesterday I found this business card in a book: John B. Lathrop of Lockheed Aircraft Corp. Someone drew a cute little bug in the corner. Because I am a curious person I was wondered about Mr. Lathrop and how long ago someone must have put this card in the book… so I looked him up.

Turns out that Mr. Lathrop had a very interesting career in engineering and research.  More here. And he died in 1978. That means that this card has likely been in the book since before I was born.
