Class of February 1953
Donald (Steinberg) Sargent
January 25, 2023
I earned a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree from Cornell University in 1958, then worked for Union Carbide Chemicals in Charleston, WV. In 1964, joined Grumman’s Apollo Lunar Module propulsion design team, followed by the on-site propulsion test program at NASA’s White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico. Post-Apollo, I worked for Versar, a contractor to the Environmental Protection Agency, for more than 15 years, for EPA’s effluent guidelines and priority pollutants programs. Along the way, became a Registered Professional Engineer and a Certified Industrial Hygienist.
Afterwards, returned to aerospace and rejoined Grumman for NASA’s International Space Station project, in the development of the Space Station’s propulsion and environmental control and life support. Completed 18 years at Johnson Space Center in Houston in 200. After a 3-week retirement, joined the Commercial Space Transportation office of the Federal Aviation Administration in Washington, DC, evaluating rocket operators’ (SpaceX, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, and others) launch licenses to ensure safety for the uninvolved public, specializing in propulsion and life support. Still working full-time (at age 87) for FAA.
Class of 1952
December 19, 2022
I followed my recently deceased brother, George R. Huson ’47, who became a rocket scientist, to Tech where I swam on Coach Connell’s team. Still swimming. Swam at the U.S. Masters Short Course National Swimming Championships in 2021. After Tech, won an NROTC scholarship to University of Louisville, Kentucky, where I swam on the team and met my wife of 65 years. After graduation and commissioning spent six years in the Caribbean before returning to the U.S.
Bumped around until 1972, when I had the opportunity to move to Charlotte, N.C., where I founded Carocon, a general contractor company. We have built over 30,000 housing units and last year had a volume of over $14,000,000. Have five children, 14 grandchildren, and seven grandchildren. Friends and classmates can reach me here.
Class of 1958
Malcolm Davidson, M.D. FAAP
December 16, 2022
I have very vivid memories of my four years at BTHS and still have my Major T. Like so many of my classmates, I too feel a tremendous sense of gratitude to Tech for my four years of excellent education.
I went on to get my BA at Uptown Hunter College (now Lehman College) in the Bronx and clocked four more years commuting via the NYC transit system. I then went to Upstate Medical School in Syracuse. My internship and residency in Pediatrics were completed at Children’s Hospital and Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas and Baylor Hospital Program in Houston. After two years in the USAF Medical Corp, I returned to Dallas, spent 45 years in General Pediatric practice and have been retired for the past seven years.
Amongst my best and most memorable teachers were Mr. Lincoln (Industrial Processes) and Mr. Tron (French). Amongst my most terrifying teachers were Mr. Nepo (Woodshop) and Mr. Riker (Mechanical Drawing).
If possible, I would like to know if two of my classmates, Charles Courdy and Ronald Cardos are still out there.
