In 191( she decided she would learn to fly and she did She wanted to be the first woman to fly across the English Channel and in 1912 she did that, too." Unfortunately, Harriet's flamboyant flying career was shortlived, She and a male passenger crashed during a routine flying exhibition at the 1912 Harvard-Boston Aviation Meet and both were killed.

Yet the U.S. government stead- fastly refused to allow them to join the Air Services and fly in combat, an issue still in dispute today, more than half a century later. Some women, though, did find ways to put their special skills to use--in fund-raising flights for the Red Cross and Liberty Loans, hy lending their famous names to the recruiting effort and by training future military pilots at private airfields. "Mter the war," Oakes says, "Flying took on a dif- ferent aspect. There were more people flying in general; there were more airplanes in existence. The novelty had worn off. Women aviators in the 19205 also had one other big advantage over their predecessors: role models." "I think that is the most important contribution of the early women aviators," she continues. "They proved that women were not too stupid or too fragile to learn to fly. They ,showed women everywhere that they, too, could break with tradition. They were successful ; they were professionals, They were truly pioneers of flight." New outlet store in N. Haverhill N. HAVERHILL--WOOdsvilIe Industries on Benton Road in N.
