    Notes 
    • William Joseph Cashman Jr. was graduated from the Willard grammar school in Quincy on the afternoon of Friday, January 23rd, at the Quincy high school hall. He was one of 27 graduates of the Willard School. [Source: Patriot Ledger (Quincy, MA), Friday, January 23, 1920, pages 1-3]

      William was a registered Democrat in 1930, 1932, 1934, 1936.

      "It might be of interest that my Uncle William was, at the time of his death in the 1960's, the last surviving member of Dr. Robert Goddard's crew. We are trying to find out a little more about his career. I met him shortly before he died when he came to Boston on business for the Jed Propulsion Lab with a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist." - Regina Gookin, 10 Apr 2007

    325 1961 William J Cashman 25 Year Vet of JPL
    "Rocket Scientist 25-Year Veteran" by Bill Mayer --- You might say that Dr. William Hayward Pickering became a top scientist because the administration at Caltech was worried about the safety of its students. That was long ago. Now he sits in an office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the sign on the door shows the word "director" under his name. On his lapel there is a pin proclaiming for all to see that here is a man who has dedicated 25 years to rocketry. And his lieutenants number more than 3000. But the beginning was, in his words, a group of wild eyed graduate students in aeronautics. Pickering was then a teacher in electrical engineering full time, and occasionally he offered suggestions to the wild-eyed ones. JPL was not born yet. "It came eventually," Pickering recalled, "because the administration decided experiments with rockets were too dangerous on campus." The graduate students were not about to give up what they were doing. They were sure the possibilities of jet propulsion had not been exhausted in Fourth of July fireworks. To find a way to use all that power to make conventional engines obsolete, perhaps to probe outer space itself - these thoughts were substance for their dreams. Through those early years, until 1944 Pickering remained a friend to be called on when needed, to help when he could. But these were war times, and the war had made the visions of the wild-eyed respectable. In August, 1941, the United States registered its first jet-assisted take-off (JATO) at March Field. "So then," said Pickering, leaning back in his chair "we knew it was possible to get a plane into the air from a very small field. We could manage without long runways." Seventeen years ago Pickering started at JPL as what he calls "a kind of consultant." And from then on he spent more and more time there. He became director in 1954, at the age of 43. Along with Pickering four others have just received 25-year pins - William J. Cashman, (end of transcription) [Source credit: Pasadena Star News, Thursday, August 24, 1961, page 14]
