Thanks to Deb Hirsch, who pointed out this super post on blogs.nasa.gov about Frances Dunkle Coffin, along with the pic above and this quote:
“… In that very straightforward way, Fran was part of the generation of women who blazed trails for girls and women who followed. That legacy of open doors is part of what she leaves behind. We are all the richer for it.” – Robin Greenler, Family Friend
Read the post to learn about Coffin’s career in Chemistry at the NACA Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory in Cleveland, Ohio (which later was part of NASA).
