Abstract: Successful development of the B-58 Weapon System constitutes a substantial step forward in aeronautical technology. Those of us who aspire to participation in the development of a supersonic transport system may find benefit in a knowledge of B-58 history. "One must know history in order to benefit from it," according to Winston Churchill and President Kennedy. Today I will endeavor merely to outline the history of the B-58 development by reviewing some of the highlights.
