Abstract:

Goddard (1882-1945) was the most famous scientist in America between the world wars, and his fame continued to grow after his death until 1960, when the biography This High Man proved too holographic, and scientists and historians began to object. He became a historical footnote, but Clary (history, Eastern New Mexico U., Roswell) wants to shed light on the man, not the legend he and his heirs made of him.
