Life at Aerospace: A Look Back
There was ready opportunity to learn about many of the former traditions and the campus lifestyle over the decades at The Aerospace Corporation as the editors and corporate archivist dug through material for this 50th anniversary issue of Crosslink. For example, did you know that in the “good old days” at Aerospace, when maybe life was just a little bit slower, the corporation had a full-service dining room, employee art exhibitions, and lunchtime cosmetology classes?
Among some of the traditions and fun captured here, there are also photos from many of the former anniversary celebrations the company recognized over the decades. The landscape picture in the background shows the corporation’s first headquarters in what would later become the Los Angeles Air Force Base, when much of the area surrounding Aerospace was still open space and even fertile ground for farming.
