Interested in aviation as early as 1910, William Boeing waited until 1914 for his first airplane ride. In 1916, he founded the airplane company that put Seattle on the aviation may. Before Boring, Seattle features aircraft builders like Eugene Romano, G.T. Takasou, Tom Hamilton, and Herb Munter. Boeing emerged during World War I and, in the beginning of World War II, had become a world leader. In those years, lesser known individuals like Eddie Hubbard, Percy Barnes, Vern Grost, the Becvar brothers, Elliot Merrill, Jim Galvin, and Lana Kurtzer influenced commercial aviation around Seattle. Drawing on photographs from around the area, Seattle’s Commercial Aviation: 1908-1941 illustrates the early days beginning with dirigible flights, recognizes the arrival of commercial airmail and the airlines, salutes the local operators, and make Seattle’s Emergence as the aviation gateway to Alaska.
