Bookplate: Mary H. Howson

A bookplate inside a copy of Those Wonderful Women in Their Flying Machines
by Sally Van Wagenen Keil at Radnor Memorial Library in Wayne, PA.

I began reading about the WASPs at the local library while I was back home one summer. This was the second book that I read. I glanced right past the bookplate and it was only later I realized that Mary was one of the thirty-eight and that here was a local connection to the history.

There is a article about Mary at WASPs on the Web and also a tribute in her memory, after a poem by James Whitcomb Riley.
