Aviation historian and author presents her newest book, Cliff Henderson: Visionary Leader
WHAT: Barbara H. Schultz, an aviation historian, author, and speaker for over 25 years will be presenting her newest book, Cliff Henderson: Visionary Leader. Cliff’s contributions to aviation were phenomenal. Cliff seized opportunities when he saw them and transformed them into reality. As Managing Director for the National Air Races, Cliff created a “laboratory of the industry” which provided an international platform for faster airplanes, more reliable motors, and safer transportation. Under his guidance, new world records were set and the public was entertained. Thousands returned each year to witness the daring, the spectacular, and the thrills provided by the National Air Races.
Barbara focuses on documenting the lives of individuals who spent their lives contributing to aviation. Her research is exemplary. Books she has written are Pancho: The Biography of Florence Lowe Barnes;Wedell-Williams Air Service; Flying Carpets, Flying Wings: The Biography of Moye W. Stephens; and Endorsed by Earhart: How Amelia Financed her Flying. She has also written several articles for the American Aviation Historical Society Journal and consulted and appeared in three aviation documentaries: Breaking Through the Clouds, The Katherine Cheung Story,and The Happy Bottom Riding Club. Barbara earned her private pilot’s license in 1978, purchasing a 1950 Cessna 140A soon after. She and her husband live on their own airport near Lancaster, California where they keep their collection of airplanes including a Beech 18.
