Wedell-Williams Air Service

The book, Wedell-Williams Air Service, by Robert S. Hirsch and Barbara H. Schultz has just arrived in the mail. Another book with no index. Argh.

It tells the story of Harry P. Williams and James R. Wedell, two aviation pioneers during the 1930s who built racing planes. Mary "Mae" Haizlip and her husband, Johnny Haizlip, flew these planes, among other pilots.

The Louisiana State Museum has an extensive Wedell-Williams Collection.
