  • Featured in "The Torch," January 1974: "A check from TRW Corp., of Cleveland, was presented Decmebr 4 to Michael Collins, Director of the National Air and Space Museum, by Kenneth Meuser, Jr., TRW manager of special projects (right). The check was the first payment on an $18,000 three-year pledge to be applied to exhibit needs at the new NASM building now under construction. Ruben Mettler, president of TRW, has been a member of the National Board of the Smithsonian Associates for two years, and the contribution is in line with a new policy encouraging corporate contributions for specific projects. Accepting the check, Mr. Collins states that $8 to $10 million will be needed to create and construct exhibits in the 200,000 square feet of space available in the new museum."
