This paper is a commentary on a small chapter in the recent history of turbomachinery research. It was written to describe the positive influence of an individual, Melvin J. Hartmann, working in a federal research center, on a particular university research program. However, in its final form, it cannot help but shed some light on the long-term effects of small-scale, mission-oriented, federal agency funding of engineering research in universities. Secondarily, it will recall a series of experimental investigations of axial-flow pump configurations, which produced data of possible relevance to current compressor and pump problems.
