My Great Uncle GILBERT LLOYD BEAHAN worked in the Engineering & Development Division of Rohr Corporation from about 1944 until he retired in 1964. He called himself a "tool builder" and later referred to himself as a "retired Rohr patternmaker." According to the July 21, 1966 Chula Vista Star-News, Beahan said he was a "patternmaker (handling plastics), a researcher (developing plastic tools to withstand terrific pressures), and finally, a salvage sales supervisor." He was also a well known artist in Chula Vista. He passed away in September 1974.

The article, Rohr Man's Weekend Home Project Builds Toward Retirement Goal, above is from the December 7, 1959 issue of ROHR NEWS.
