"Forgotten Aviator" Book Signing

The Granville Brothers Aircraft Gee Bee, an airplane flown by Royal Leonard

Time: Saturday, June 23, 2012 - 11:00am - 3:00pm

Event Type: Public Program

Location: Museum Lobby

Author Barry S. Martin tells the story of Royal Leonard (1905-1962), who flew in and out of aviation history - just on the edge of fame, in his book, "Forgotten Aviator: The Adventures of Royal Leonard." "If Royal's story were told in a novel," says long-time China pilot and author Felix Smith, "nobody would believe it all could have happened to one man."

The author has spent twenty years uncovering a rich trove of private documentary sources about the Forgotten Aviator. Martin is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the College of William and Mary and has an M.A. in history from the University of Washington and a J.D. from the University of California - Berkeley. He is a retired Administrative Law Judge and resides in Sacramento, California with his wife, Carolyn.

The book will be available for purchase in the Museum Store and the author will be available in the Museum Lobby to sign books.
