Horace B. Tuttle

     Here's a nice picture of a real he-man birdman, Horace Tuttle of Cleveland, whose interest in aviation is still keen and who is always on the lookout for us to uncover interesting material for the BEAM. Horace, who first flew in Georgia in 1916, is shown in a CAP uniform of a few years ago, and we thought his many friends would liek to see him all pirmed and ready for flight.
