Millard’s son , Joseph Dusenbury, has an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and a master’s degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech. He works for Lockheed, Inc. and is working with Stanford University and NASA to prove Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Carolyn (Lyn) Wylder, PE, Millard’s daughter, has an undergraduate and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech. Lyn’s career has been in public transit design and construction, and she is currently employed by David Evans & Associates.
