I just discovered this website.

My father worked at Martin Marietta as an aerospace engineer on Titan missile projects.

I particularly enjoy that part of the website with articles on aspects of the history of Martin.  A few of my favorites relate to the Titan program as well the history of how the development of Martin’s plant in Waterton, Colorado affected Littleton, Colorado.
