It was started circa 1948, technically after the stated 1943 start date of RRS, but all three started about the same time and were incorporated and formalized at different times.
RRI has a non-commercial solid mix facility and launches at Smoke Creek, right next to Black Rock.contact: David Crisalli Official History: Chrisali Dosa Ky says Jim Humphries was RRS Historian (deceased).
It is a very old organization by hobby standards with roots dating back to the '50s thus predating hobby rocketry in its current form.

While I have spent quite some time searching the web I can only find information on the mail carried by the rockets and nothing about the rockets themselves.Founded in 1943, members of this Southern California group investigate all forms of reaction based vehicles: solid/liquid/hybrid.
