Inge Kistler

Greta Gadbois submitted this story about her grandmother:

Grandma Inge (Inge Kistler) worked on calculating the trajectories of artillary.  She was working at Aberdeen Proving Ground, which is a US Army facility in Maryland.  She has a bachelors in math, and did her course work for a masters in engineering.

Her science work was contained in the report she wrote in March 1957: “An application of nonlinear theory to the yawing motion of mortar shell.”
