During WWII, the Curtiss Wright aircraft company trained and employed women for engineering work at their plants. ‘Curtiss Wright Cadette’ training programs were established at seven universities across the US, with about 100 women at each site. Some of the history of Curtiss Wright and the experiences of some of the Cadettes, including the mother and aunt of the instructor, will be discussed.

Ruth Baltus is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Clarkson University. She has been a member of the Clarkson faculty since 1983.
