GEORGE GRUNDY. Autograph Letter signed: "George D. Grundy Jr.", 1 p, 7¼x10¾. On personal stationery. Norfolk, Virginia, 1973 April 22. To "Dear Mr. Veremakis". In full: "My solo date was September 17th 1916. It was in a Benoist Flying Boat at Graham Beach, Staten Island, New York. The Flying Boat was built in Sandusky, Ohio and it had a 100 H.P. Roberts motor. Sincerely." George Debaun Grundy Jr. (1898-1998) was the last surviving member of the Early Birds of Aviation, a club of early aviators who made solo flights on or before December 17, 1916. Grundy beat the deadline, as described in his letter. He flew only a short time testing and demonstrating auto pilots in a Benoist flying boat as he stood on a wing with a second person on the opposite wing to balance the plane. He soon quit aviation and went into real estate where he remained until retirement. Fine condition.
