It was a neat and tidy little book that put forth in reasonably convincing fashion the notion that Gustave Whitehead had flown a heavier-than-air, powered, controlled machine of his own construction in 1901. Randolph and her sister, Clara, found and interviewed people who had known Whitehead and/or had stated they'd been present 30 years earlier when one or more of his supposed "flights" had taken place, and she included reproductions of 13 "eyewitness" affidavits in her book.
Stella Randolph said that she first heard about Gustave Whitehead when her friend Harvey Phillips (whom she called the "The Phillips Aeronautic Library") told her of a letter by Whitehead published in the April 1, 1901, American Inventor and urged Randolph to pursue the matter.
It will probably come as a profound shock to those still spewing venom in the direction of the Smithsonian, that the Smithsonian - specifically aviation historian Paul Edward Garber - discovered Gustave Whitehead.
" After that, approaches by Crane and Zahm to Randolph ceased.
