George Landwehr Von Pragenau, January 5, 1927 - July 11, 2013.

Obituary from The Huntsville Times:

Since 1957, he made significant contributions to rocketry in Huntsville, starting with transistor circuitry under General Medaris in Dr. Von Braun's Guidance Control Lab with Dr. Haeussermann, continuing with key contributions in several projects: the Saturn V and space shuttle, even throughout his retirement.
He also held a patent for a hydraulic support for dynamic testing.

Shouldn't it read "General Medaris"?

I didn't notice that when I copy/pasted from the web site (I guess I knew what they meant).

I've corrected my original post and contacted the Times.
