Irv Wait is on par with Orville, Lee and Lonnie. I worked with his product on Mosquito Coast.

As we all know he invented Enerjet which was instrumental to Composite Dynamics and Errortech and of course U.S. Rockets. I made my first MR style composite with thrust and delay in 1972. EJ was deprecated in 1974.
