Lockheed Martin Corp., will deliver the inaugural talk in a lecture
series titled "Leadership in a Technological World." His lecture, "The
Elements of Leadership," is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19,

Augustine started a distinguished career in the aerospace industry and government service after earning his bachelor's and master's degrees from Princeton in 1957 and 1959. He served in the Office of the Secretary of Defense in the 1960s and was undersecretary of the Army and acting secretary of the Army in the 1970s. He became chairman and chief executive of Martin Marietta Corp. in 1987 and became president of the newly formed Lockheed Martin in 1995, retiring two years later as chairman and chief executive. He also has served as chairman of the American Red Cross and the National Academy of Engineering, in addition to service on the boards of many other corporations and organizations.
Augustine received the National Medal of Technology in 1997 and the Public Welfare Medal in 2006. Most recently, he chaired a National Academies of Science panel on U.S. competitiveness, which produced a highly influential report, "Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future."
The lecture series, sponsored by Princeton's Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, continues in December with a talk by David Crane, president and chief executive of NRG Energy Inc.
