ABSTRACT
The article profiles Long Beach, California-born aviator Earl S. Daugherty. Daugherty is the first resident of Long Beach to ever fly and hold an 87th pilot license signed by Orville Wright. He was inspired to fly after attending the 1910 air meet in Dominguez Hills and subsequently took the flying instructor course in 1916 at the U.S. Signal Corps Aviation School. His period of service in the military and his establishment of the School of Aviation are also discussed.
