Thu, September 23, 2021

The NAS has listed the Jonsson Center for sale. Purchased in 1975, it was named in honor of NAE member J. Erik Jonsson in 1991. Jonsson was a co-founder of Texas Instruments and a mayor of Dallas. He received the Founders Award of the NAE in 1974. Read more on his life. It is noted there that Jonsson had the sad duty to inform 2600 guests at a Dallas luncheon that their expected speaker, President John F. Kennedy, had been shot.
