  • Notes 
    • "Daddy graduated from Villanova University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1954 [Editor's note: It was actually 1953]. He then served 39 months in the Navy as an engineering duty officer in Charleston, S.C., and Groton, Conn. In 1960, he was an electrical engineer with the Westinghouse Special Atomic Project in Pittsburgh. In 1968, he took a job with General Electric and relocated his family to the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pa. He was laid off from GE around May 1971 (Mom thinks because a government contract dried up???) and went back to southwestern PA to work for Westinghouse, coming home on the weekends. The whole family moved out in August 1971 so the big kids could start school on time." -Susan Zellner

      While in the Navy, worked on the first refueling of the USS Nautilus, the first nuclear powered submarine, at the Electric Boat yard in Groton, Connecticut, February 1957. Also worked on the USS Skate and the USS Skipjack.

      Held several patents. Developed gas-cooled thermocouple with his friend Phil Blau.

      Spent first three years of marriage in England, where he worked on Britain's first nuclear submarine, the Dreadnought. First two daughters were born there. Upon returning to Pittsburgh in 1963, worked for the Westinghouse Astronuclear Laboratory, where he helped design and test the propulsion system for a nuclear powered spacecraft intended for a Mars mission.

      Worked at the Westinghouse Walt Mill Site (Madison, PA) in the Advanced Reactors Division from 1971-76. The Clinch River breeder reactor was among his projects.
