George C. Kenyon (d. 2003), NASA aeronautical engineer. Kenyon was "a principal contributor to development of the world's first maneuverable, but wingless, space vehicle. This one-seventh scale model of the flight-test vehicle shows the over-sized canopy and dorsal fin added to assure safety in early full-scale tests."
