|21 Sep 2007||USA||Milton Clifford Davis, one-time superintendent of Douglas Aircraft Company, adopted me at my age 5, introduced me to aircraft technology. Coach O'Rourke introduced me to high jumping. Then the synergy of loving Joanne brought the kite, "Bucky" Fuller, then Otto Lilienthal, David Barish, Domina Jalbert, Richard Miller, Rogallo, the Otto members of Self-Soar Association, the Rogallos, and now the scientists of nanotechnology are the roots of my involvement in kiting, hang gliding, hang gliders, and the interest in curating some of its history. Thanks all.||Joe Faust|
