Virginia Tucker (1910-1985) was a native North Carolinian and one of the first women to work for NACA (now NASA) in Langeley, Virginia beginning in 1935. She later moved on to work for the Northrop Corporation in Southern California as an aerospace engineer during the 1950s and 1960s. These pictures are primarily from her scrapbook, and are related to her personal life, work, and time with the Society of Women Engineers.
