About the author (2001)

Joshua Stoff, noted aviation historian and author, is the curator of the Cradle of Aviation Museum. Many of these photographs have come from the extensive archives of the museum, as well as the once magnificent archives of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which were sadly lost in the attacks of September 11, 2001. Fortunately, these representative photographs, many of which have never before been published, were copied prior to those attacks and were saved.
