WIRELESS BEGINS TO TALK -- AND FLY
Electronics in the West: The First Fifty Years,
Jane Morgan, 1967, pages 32-38:
This page is quite remarkable and tells a fascinating story. The author writes in great detail about the circumstances surrounding the first communication by radio from plane to
ground. As you read the story, you find many of the familiar, and some unfamiliar, names of early aviators who were active at the time.
The list includes: Cleve G. Shaffer, Fung Joe Guey, (Feng Ru),
Frank H. Johnson,
Dr. William Greene, Harold Hall, George Loose, Fred Wiseman,
Elmo Pickerill, J. A. McCurdy,
Lt. Paul W. Beck, Eugene Ely, Charles F. Willard
and Phillip Parmalee. This is a really fascinating account
of the events which surrounded the experiments in what was characterized in 1910 as , "the most valuable contribution of the century to
the highly advanced science of modern warfare."
