Information regarding Eugene Powell Townsend

I'm looking for information regarding my birth father, Eugene Powell Townsend. He was awarded the Navy Cross and was a Navy Ace in the Pacific Theater during WWII. He was stationed on the Princeton when she sank. He died as a test pilot for Northrop when I was 2 yrs old (1953). I believe he is also listed as a test pilot for 'The space Mission'. I'm looking for any information regarding his life and accomplishments.
