In 1997 North Carolina State University named her a distinguished alumnus and named Katharine Stinson Drive on campus in her honor.


Following graduation, Stinson was the first female engineer hired by the Civil Aviation Administration. During her 32-year career, she specialized in aircraft safety, developing standards for supersonic transports which were used to create the Concorde, and pioneering distribution of aircraft structural issues. She retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 1974 as Technical Assistant to the Chief of Aircraft Engineering.


In 1967, Stinson attended the second International Conference of Women Engineers and Scientists (ICWES) in Cambridge, UK, and spoke about the role of aircraft in food production.


During her career, she was active in the Ninety-Nines: International Organization of Women Pilots and helped found the Society of Women Engineers where she served as president from 1953 to 1955. She also served on President Lyndon Johnson's Women's Advisory Committee on Aviation from 1964 to 1970, and served as an officer in the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences. Stinson also belonged to the Soroptimist Club, serving as president from 1970 to 1972.


Stinson's 1936 application to the engineering school was declined by Dean Wallace Riddick who met with her explaining that the college would not accept women as freshmen. Stinson responded by accepting a scholarship to nearby Meredith College where she completed all 48 required credit hours in a single year. She enrolled in the engineering program the following fall as one of the few female students at the college and the only female in the engineering department. She graduated in 1941 with a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering with an Aeronautical option, becoming the first woman to do so at N.C. State, and one of just five women in the country that year to earn a degree in engineering or architecture.


Katharine Stinson (1917-2001) was an American aeronautical engineer and the Federal Aviation Administration's first female engineer.
