    Bio / His Notes: 
    German-born Ernest (Ernst) Loebell (1902-1979), engineer and rocket designer, was a graduate of Breslau and Oldenburg universities. In Berlin and later New York, Loebell was employed as a mechanical engineer for Otis Elevator Company. He moved to Cleveland in 1930 and worked for White Motor Company and Lear, Inc. In Ohio, he helped organize the Cleveland Rocket Society, which between 1933 and 1938 sought to develop a liquid fueled engine that could power a stratospheric rocket across the Atlantic. Six rocket motors were built and were tested on an estate outside of Cleveland. One of the Society's rocket models was displayed at the Paris International Exposition of 1937. The Cleveland Rocket Society folded in 1938 due to lack of funds.
    Summary:
