    At about the same time the Daniel Guggenheim Foundation for the Promotion of Aeronautics was established. From this Foundation, Caltech was granted funds in to establish the Daniel Guggenheim Graduate School of Aeronautics and to build the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory.   His enthusiasm for aviation whetted by his World War I experience, Mr. Guggenheim in persuaded his father to provide $, to establish the Guggenheim School of Aeronautics .

    The Daniel Guggenheim Airship Institute formed part of the Engineering School of the University of Akron. It was formed in under an agreement between the Daniel Guggenheim Fund for the Promotion of Aeronautics, the University of Akron and the California Institute of Technology. The Institute was built on the grounds of the Akron Municipal. Awarded to an Aeronautics student who has made the most significant contribution to the teaching and research effort of the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories.

      That legacy was affirmed when he accepted the Daniel Guggenheim Medal, taking his rightful place beside the other five Guggenheim Medal award winners from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford School of Engineering: Antony Jameson (), Arthur E.

The Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT), was a research institute created inat first specializing in aeronautics research. InHungarian scientist Theodore von Kármán accepted the directorship of the lab and emigrated to the United States.

Under his leadership, work on rockets began there in Daniel Guggenheim (July 9, – Septem ) was an American mining magnate and philanthropist, and a son of Meyer and Barbara Guggenheim. By he directed the world's most important group of mining interests.

He was forced out in and retired to philanthropy to promote mater: Peirce College. The institute was founded and funded by industrialist Daniel Guggenheim inin cooperation with the University of Akron and the California Institute of Technology.

Much of the inspiration for the project was the fact that two huge Navy airships, the Akron and the Macon, were about to be constructed at the nearby airdock. At the groundbreaking ceremonies, Daniel said, As I am an old man whose active days are past, I shall dedicate the rest of my life, with the aid of my son Harry F.

Guggenheim, to the study and promotion of the science of I a younger man seeking a career in either science or commerce, I should unhesitatingly turn to aviation.

Arthur Emmons. The wind tunnel was built with a grant from the Daniel Guggenheim Fund, which also made possible the founding of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory (GALCIT) and an entire academic building in which to house the facility.

Known to this day as Guggenheim Laboratory, the building is dominated by the four-story wind tunnel at its center. As I reflect on the impact Course 16 has had on MIT and on the world at large, two things stand out right away: first the close intertwining of AeroAstro's own history with the history of MIT in Cambridge, and second, the overwhelming, the overpowering role the department faculty, students, staff, and alumni, have played in every major achievement in the short history of aerospace.
