This is what we should do for all the outstanding scientists in applied mechanics.
AMD should take a lead on this.

(1) "Scientists in applied mechanics" are called mechanicians. See an entry in AMN.

(2) Because there is much biographical information online or in print. Perhaps as a first step we can make links to various sources.

(3) At some point we can start a project in wikipedia on the history of applied mechanics.
