Summary:Mathematician and computer scientist Katherine G. Johnson was born on August 26, 1918 in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. She attended West Virginia State College where she met Dr. W.W. Schieffelin Claytor who created a special course in analytic geometry for her continued education. Johnson earned her B.S. degree in French and mathematics in 1937. She then worked as a high school mathematics teacher until 1953 when she became a research mathematician for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Johnson worked in the Flight Research Division before moving to the Spacecraft Controls Branch. In 1961, she calculated the trajectory of Alan Shepard's Mercury Flight. In 1962, she verified the mathematics behind John Glenn's orbit, and in 1969, she calculated the trajectory for the Apollo 11 flight. Johnson received NASA's Lunar Spacecraft and Operation's Group Achievement Award and the NASA Langley Research Center Special Achievement Award. Johnson retired from NASA in 1986.
