Frances Heisler Space Academy
Retirement Book

When Frances retired, after shepherding the company through its merger with Douglas, MAC showed its gratitude.  MAC understood what she had done for him and for the company, which is why he begged her to return after the aggravation of dealing with her male associates, outraged over taking orders, even if politely given, from a woman.  

Without Frances Brake Heisler our history is space would have taken far longer.
