Margaret Perry Working on her Plane, 1930

Margaret was one of the twenty impressive women who competed in the famous National Women's Air Derby - the first Women's Transcontinental Air Race.  The Aviatrix navigated from Santa Monica's Clover Field to Cleveland, frequently using road maps from the open cockpit as they raced eastward for nine days in 1929.   Margaret Perry came down with Typhoid Fever somewhere in Texas and while she did recover, she did not ultImately make it to Cleveland.
