Pres. C.D. Mote, Jr., and officials from Lockheed Martin Corporation helped Clark School Dean Nariman Farvardin unveil a new display housing the bust of Clark School benefactor and aviation pioneer Glenn L. Martin on April 10 in the Kim Engineering Building.

Mal O'Neill, chief technology officer at Lockheed Martin, spoke at the ceremony attended by Clark School faculty, staff, students and alumni, and Lockheed Martin staff.

More than 2,000 engineering alumni now work for Lockheed Martin, a Clark School Corporate Partner that has continued the generosity to the Clark School and the University of Maryland that Glenn L. Martin started with two gifts to the university back in the 1940s and 1950s.

Those gifts have gone on to fund building projects, professorships and other endeavors at the university.

The new exhibit features text and photos about Martin's contributions to aviation and the university and about his business successes. His company was a predecessor to Lockheed Martin. The exhibit also highlights the current beneficiaries of the many professorships funded by Martin's generous gifts.

The Martin bust was sculpted by Marchello Storelli in 1957. The new exhibit was crafted by Clark School alumnus Helmut Guenschel, B.S. '62 civil engineering, who attended yesterday's ceremony. The exhibit will move to its permanent home in the main lobby of Martin Hall later this spring.
