  • In view of the earlierpublication in this journal of a biography of Theodore von K\'arm\'an by Sears \& Sears(1979), which referred to his years inGermany at G\"ottingen (1908 to 1912) and Aachen (1912 to 1930)and at the Guggen- heim Aeronautical Laboratory of the CaliforniaInstitute of Technology (GALCIT) from 1930 to 1952, we restrictour review here to his later years (from 1952 until his death in1963). We also comment on his scientific legacy and identifyrepresentative institutions and outstanding workers whose researchcontinues the von K\'arm\'an style of work in the general areas ofaerothermochemistry and allied fields.
