Secretary of the Armed Forces gets PhD at age 89

Verne Orr 14th Secretary of the Air Force

Last week I cataloged a PhD thesis by the former Secretary of the Armed Forces (under president Ronald Reagan), Verne Orr, entitled:


Developing strategic weaponry and the political process : the B1-B bomber from drawing board to flight


The thesis is dated 2005, which means Orr wrote the thesis when he was 89, and died 3 years later, in 2008.  There seems to be only 2 other holdings on OCLC for this title.—Jody Mussoff
