Dolores A. Pieper
Dolores A. Pieper worked in the Technical Information Office in the Underwater Sound Research Division of the Naval Research Laboratory (USRD-NRL) in Orlando with physicists Rodger N. Capps, Vincent Benedetti and Robert J. Bobber, Sr., and many others.
Dolores was responsible for editing the physicists’ papers and books for publication. One of the works she edited was the September 1989 book entitled, “Elastomeric Materials for Acoustical Applications” by Rodger N. Capps, published for the Naval Research Laboratory.

Dolores moved back to Indiana in 2000 to be closer to her family and currently resides in Franklin. To this day she talks about many fond memories of working at NRL and the relationships established with many co-workers. Amazingly, she kept every single personnel action record, pay record, training record, awards and recognitions from 1952 to 2000 and several photo albums of the many employees and ceremonies from the Naval Research Lab.
