Curtis R. and Janet Hains Lewis
Riverside and Chula Vista
Curt Lewis and Janet Hains Lewis, both of whom worked for Rohr in Riverside (and possibly before that in Chula Vista, where I was born) until 1960, when they were part of a large layoff. We moved to Louisiana (where my mother grew up) after that.
My father passed away some years ago. Not sure what his job was – all I know is he wore white dress shirts and ties and looked quite dapper. (I remember starching and ironing those shirts – he loved French cuffs!)
Mama was an illustrator at Rohr. Everything that is now done by computers in the blink of an eye was done then by laborious drawing to create the blueprints used in production – each part drawn meticulously to show its placement in the aircraft engines. She talks fondly of her days there and some of her co-workers.
