"The Life and Times of Jonathan Edward Caldwell, Inventor of the Round-Wing Plane"
Jonathan Edward Caldwell (born March 24, 1883, date of death unknown) was a self-taught aeronautical engineer who designed a series of bizarre aircraft and started public companies in order to finance their construction. None of these was ever successful, and after his last known attempt in the later 1930s he disappeared.
Independent Scholar Michael Grady will explore theories on why Caldwell suddenly disappeared never to be heard from again, how his round wing planes may have further evolved, and the incredibly shocking, painstakingly researched disclosures of Caldwell's Independent Scholar biographer.
Free and open to the public.
