History

The Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation was founded in 1924.

Between 1930 and 1941 the foundation financed Robert H. Goddard. When the United States government settled a patent lawsuit for infringing the Goddard patent for liquid fuel rockets, that money was awarded to the foundation.[1]

The foundation was terminated on June 30, 2011. The Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation Program on Demography, Technology and Criminal Justice has taken over some of the functions.
