I've been busy inputting the names in The Powder Puff Derby commemorative annual. There's a name label on the inner front page - Betty Wharton.
I thought the name sounded familiar when I first glanced at it...but I didn't think much of it.
Today of course I realize, Betty Wharton participated in the Powder Puff Derby, from 1969 to 1971, and she would have been in the 1977 one, which was postponed.
So I've got a book which actually belonged to an air racer. I am so jazzed!
And sad, of course, because obviously she wouldn't have given this book up. It must have come from her estate.
It's a great book, I'm really enjoying it.
