Elsie fact #11: Connections at the NRC

 As part of Elsie's work at Fairchild she started to develop various networks that facilitated her work and would, in time, assist her with other projects as well. The most important network was at the National Research Council of Canada or NRC (for more information on the important history of the NRC and civil aviation see here)

Elsie personally took models from Fairchild in her car to the NRC in Ottawa. Once onsite she worked with a range of colleagues to conduct the needed wind tunnel tests. It was at the NRC that she once again encountered Professor Parkin.
