Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
The Harvard Boston Aero Meet was held at the Harvard Aero Field in Atlantic (now Squantum), Massachusetts, September 3-13, 1910. This meet was the second air meet held in the country, and the first on the East Coast. The international contestants raced for money prizes, and the event attracted thousands of spectators, including President Taft. Among the nineteen aviators were: Glenn Curtiss, Charles Foster Willard, A.V. Roe, Claude Graham-White, Clifford Harmon, Walter Brookings, Arthur Johnson, M. Didier Masson, William Christmas, Greely Curtis, and Thomas Baldwin. Air meet competitors challenged each other in nine events: Speed, Altitude, Duration, Distance, Slow Lap, Getaway, Airway, Dropping Bombs on Battle ship, and the Boston Globe Special. Claude Graham-White, an Englishman, was the big winner, netting $22,000.
