This entry of TechWCW is shorter, because Annie Easley was brought to my attention by Ashley Nelson-Hornstein an engineer at Dropbox.  She wrote an excellent piece profiling Annie Easley where you can learn more about her.  


Annie Easley was a computer programmer, mathematician, and aerospace engineer at the Lewis Research Center at NASA & NACA in the 1950s – 1980s.  Easley excelled at mathematics in high school, and after moving to Cleveland in 1955 she became a Mathematician & Computer Engineer at the Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory.  While working she continued her education at the Cleveland State University earning a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.

Her 34 year career focused on writing computer programs that focused on alternative energy projects including solar energy, wind energy, and project Centaur.
