From the website of the British Interplanetary Society: "Ken Gatland was born in Richmond on 20th October 1924, and lived briefly in Twickenham. The family moved to Tolworth where Ken attended Tolworth Junior School and later Hollyfield School in Surbiton. On leaving school, he attended the Hawker Aircraft Technical School prior to joining the Hawker Design staff in 1941 under Sydney Camm. He worked on wartime aircraft such as the Hurricane, Typhoon and Tempest and later on the Hunter, Harrier and Hawk. While working for Sydney Camm, Ken was encouraged by Camm’s brother Frank, who edited "Practical Mechanics, " to write articles on Rocket Propulsion. He went on to write his first book "Development of the Guided Missile" (Iliffe, 1952) , and others, published by Wingate, Blandford, Salamander and a few books for children by Macdonald. In 1983 he was given one of the earliest of the History Awards of the IAA for "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Space Technology" as consultant and principal author. After leaving Hawkers in 1957 he worked for "The Aeroplane" as Editor of the Astronautics Section (1959- 1962) and as contributing Editor (Astronautics) for Iliffe Books Ltd. (1962-1964). Working as a freelance journalist and author he wrote for The Sunday Telegraph as Space Correspondent and provided articles on other subjects for The Sunday Telegraph Magazine. ".
