THE CALL, San Francisco, June 2, 1912 (Section 2)
* Aviator Philip O. Parmalee's death
* Gust of wind causes biplane to crash
* Known for his emphasis on safety
The front page has the 2-line, 2-coumn heading: "Death Rides With Parmalee - Aviator Meets a Tragic End", with is followed an article headed: "America's 'Safest' Air Navigator Crushed Under Machine, Overturned by Gust", followed by text which continues on an inside page. The front page also has a large, related photo.
Philip Orin Parmelee, who is credited with several early aviation "firsts" and records, was considered by many to be one of the safest aviators of the era.
The complete 2nd section, pages 33 to42, which visually appear as a first section with a full masthead. Occasional small margin tears, even toning, very nice for the era.
