Did You Know?

Did you know that a Memphis aviatrix cured deafness with her flying?

Mrs. C.C. Bradbury was “cured” of her almost total hearing loss when her ears popped during a 1932 flight with Emma Harbin, a well-known aviatrix and stunt pilot.  Following this newspaper story, Mrs. Harbin received numerous requests from Mid-Southerners with hearing impairments.  I’ve yet to find a record of another miraculous cure, but I’ll keep an eye out.

Or, come by and check out the Marie Conner Aviation History Collection.
