IN MEMORIAM:  HENRY BRINTON
 
Henry C. Brinton, who passed away February 18, played an important 
role in the development and management of NASA Planetary Science 
Program.  Henry began his career at the Naval Research Laboratory 
in 1958, but shortly afterwards he joined the newly formed Goddard 
Space Flight Center.  At Goddard, he quickly developed an active 
research program, and was involved in a number of NASA missions 
including Pioneer Venus. He moved to NASA Headquarters in the 1980 
after 20 years at Goddard Space Flight Center.  At Headquarters he 
initially managed the Planetary Atmospheres program, but subsequently 
became involved in the formulation and implementation of a number of 
NASA missions.  He managed the selection of the instruments and the 
science team for the Cassini-Huygens mission and served as program 
scientist for that mission through launch until his retirement in 
1998.  From 1996 through 1998 he led the Research Program Management 
Division in the office of Space Science (OSS) at NASA Headquarters, 
which was responsible at that time for all OSS Research and Analysis 
programs.  In retirement, he remained active as a consultant to NASA.
 
A memorial service will be held at the Christian Community Presbyterian 
Church, 3120 Belair Dr., Bowie, MD on Thursday, February 24, at 11 a.m.  
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Fairfax Presbyterian 
Church, 10723 Main St., Fairfax, VA 22030 in support of the Medical 
Missions in Honduras.
