TitleAerospace Industry in Kansas City: Kansas City Companies Meet Space-Age Demands
AbstractPhotos and article by Charles Kimball, the president of the Midwest Research Institute, about the aerospace industry in Kansas City, especially research and development "locally by Spencer Chemical, a division of the Gulf Oil Corporation, and the Bendix Corporation." Also information on other science and high technology companies and institutions of the metropolitan area, including health care, engineering, chemicals, telecommunications, nuclear energy, electronic circuitry, and aircraft manufacture and design, etc.
NotesPage 38: "It has been said that in the economic growth of any geographic area, development proceeds through several major phases. The first is pioneer struggle and construction of government, which Kansas City went through in the mid-1800's. The second is the enrichment and basic capitalization of the area through development of natural resources and basic education, which took place here from Civil War days through World War II. The third is mature development founded on the growing skills, and advanced education of a growing population, such as Kansas City is now experiencing."
