Abstract : In response to requests, the following is a biographical sketch on the great contribution of Robert H. Goddard to the science and technology of rocket propulsion. There is no full-fledged biography of Dr Goddard existent. His notebooks, correspondence, and papers are in the process of being edited by Mrs. Goddard with the assistance of the Smithsonian Institution. Mr. Milton Lehman of Garrett Park, Maryland, is completing a definitive biography, and he was very helpful in the preparation of this sketch. A select bibliography was included to guide the stimulated reader until Mr. Lehman's biography appears and Dr. Goddard's papers are placed in the Library of Congress.
