Professional balloonist and airship pilot 20 years. ***Epic flight 31 Aug.1905 from Greenville, OH, in an airship of his own design & construction. Carried 6-sticks of dynamite aloft for a fireworks display; when ignited, it blew the airship into such small pieces, the crowd of 25,000 (incl. his wife & children) couldn't understand how it had disappeared. Pieces of him and his airship were later found scattered over 20 acres.
