The Washington Post reports that John E. Naugle, a NASA aerospace researcher and administrator who held the title of chief scientist when he retired from the space agency in 1981, died Jan. 23 at his home in North Falmouth, Mass. He was 89.
Dr. Naugle worked for a space lab at General Dynamics on early missile programs in San Diego and White Sands, N.M., before joining NASA at its inception in 1958.

He spent almost his entire career at NASA headquarters. At various times, he was director of the Physics and Astronomy Program and associate administrator for the Office of Space Science.

After his NASA retirement, he was chairman of Fairchild Industries’ Fairchild Space Co. The company was working with NASA to develop a privately owned space platform for industrial and government customers. Fairchild shelved the program by the mid-1980s, and Dr. Naugle became a consultant to the NASA administrator until 1991.

I worked on that Fairchild Space Company proposal and wrote briefly about it on this thread. Godspeed, John Naugle!
