More About the Author
My interest in writing grew out of a combination of photography and history and progressed from magazine articles to books. 2009 is my 75th year of photographing aircraft and my hope is to document some of this for future generations to appreciate. Reading "Dime Novels" in the early 1930s about flying led me to model building, photography, a pilot's license and three years in the AAF in World War II followed by another three in the California Air National Guard. I have had a lifelong interest in Navy aircraft and in 2006 I was honored with the Admiral Radford Award for excellence in naval aviation history and literature. "Alameda Naval Air Station" is now in print and future books will cover the postwar Nonsked aircraft, and Seaplanes of California.
