Administrative History of the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aeronautics

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aeronautics was established on March 30, 1930, when Georgia Tech received a $300,000 grant from the Daniel Guggenheim Fund for the promotion of aeronautics. This was the last and second largest grant made to seven institutions across the United States for establishment of centers for aeronautical research and instruction. Later in Georgia Tech history, the School of Aeronautics was renamed the School of Aerospace Engineering.
