Item # 676262

July 21, 1911

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, July 21, 1911

* 1st licensed woman aviator - airplanes
* 1911 Harriet Quimby photo

The top of page 3 has a one column photo of Harriet Quimby with heading: "Noted Woman Aviator" with brief text. (see) Quimby was the first American Woman aviator to receive a pilot's license. She would be killed less than a year later. Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 8 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, irregular along the spine, generally nice.
