1890 - 1971Charles Lindbergh regarded Capt. Harry F. Guggenheim and Dr. Robert Goddard as the two most forward looking men in the early history of aerospace. Guggenheim financed much of Goddard's research and was himself a combat flyer in both world wars. Guggenheim also served as United States Ambassador to Cuba, and his 1950 address on hemisphere relations was a virtual outline of the Organization of American States. Guggenheim spent much of his professional life overseeing the philanthropies of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, named for an uncle. These included the Guggenheim museum. Guggenheim owned Newsday and for a time was editor and publisher of the Pulitzer Prizewinning newspaper.
