History of Aviation
        Following the publicity of the Fish flight of May 25th, the Milwaukee Journal saw the advantages of delivering their newspapers by air. Accordingly, when the Postmaster of Milwaukee WI established a postal sub-station at the State Fair Grounds (May 30-June 1, 1912), the Journal advocated the distribution of their newspaper and mail by aeroplane by sponsoring this aviation meet. Aviator Horace Kearny flew from the fair grounds about a mile to West Allis WI where he dropped the mail pouch from the plane. Unforturnately, it became entangled on the underside of the plane and could not be dislodged. Kearny returned to the fair grounds with the entangled pouch and gave it to Farnum Fish who flew it over West Allis where it was successfully dropped. The mail was then retrieved and brought to the post office. Inclement weather cancelled additional mail carrying flights during this aviation meet.
        The Postmaster of Milwaukee WI established a postal sub-station at the Fair Grounds Milwaukee WI (September 13-17, 1915). Patterson Aviators pilot, Osbert E Williams made five flights, each circling the fair grounds carrying mail. On his return to ground, the flown mail pouch was taken to nearby West Allis Station for postal dispatch.
        Patterson Aviators pilots, Osbert E Williams and Farnum Fish had been contracted to perform at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair (September 21-24, 1915). In addition to performing some mock air battles, mail was carried on two flights. On return to ground, the flown mail was taken to the Chippewa Falls Post Office for postal dispatch.
