mini biography


From Joyce, 2005:
"...the last Titan was launched from Vandenberg and we heard the rumble and saw the vapor trail. As Steven was home I gave him a mini history lesson on Duane's contribution (they did the guidance system)."

From Micheal McIntosh
He got himself in trouble with the administration of his high school. Even though he paid for his text books, the principle objected to him tearing out the pages. Duane thought that once you read a page it made no sense to carry it back and forth from home to school and back again over and over again. So by the end of the year he was only carrying empty covers.


Patents that I can find right now that General Motors gave him credit for. On his dresser were many more little teak plaques with a silver dollar commemorating a patent owned by GM.
