History of Aviation
        The Postmaster of Benton Harbor MI established a postal sub-station at the fair grounds Benton Harbor MI. On July 17, 1912 aviator Charles F Walsh flew from the Benton Harbor Fair Grounds to East Lawn on East Street where the mail pouch was dropped from the plane. The mail was then retrieved and brought to the post office. Lincoln Beachey flew a similar flight the next day, July 18, 1912.
        The Postmaster of Port Huron MI established a postal sub-station at the Driving Park Port Huron MI (August 7-8, 1915). Patterson Aviators pilot, Osbert E Williams flew from the Driving Park about two miles to a point near the Port Huron Post Ofiice where he dropped the mail from the plane. The mail was then retrieved and taken to the post office.
        The Postmaster of Detroit MI established two postal sub-stations four miles apart (September 8-10, 1915). Postal Station #1 was at the Michigan State Fair Grounds and Station #2 was at Royal Oak MI. Patterson Aviators pilot, Osbert E Williams flew from one station to the other passinbg over the Ford Motor Company plant along the way. He had hoped to fly across the border to Windsor and Walkerville Canada but did not receive the approval from the Canadian postal authorities. On his return to ground, the flown mail pouch was taken to the post office for dispatch.
        Authorization from the Washington DC Post Office was received authorizing mail to be flown from the Ogemaw County Fair West Branch MI. On October 5, 1916 Patterson Aviator Al Boshek flew from the county fair to a point near West Branch Post Office where he dropped the mail from the plane. The mail was then retrieved and taken to the post office.
