Guggenheim Sees Aeronautics As Peace Factor

Download PDF for this date

The expansion of aeronautics is seen as a strong factor for world peace by Daniel Guggenheim, founder of the Guggenheim Foundation for the Promotion of Aeronautics.

“When people are but hours instead of days, weeks and months apart. they will get acquainted. learn of each other’s faults and virtues, and in time learn to sit down amicably together and straighten out their problems.” Mr. Guggenheim declared in an article in the Sunday “Times.”

“Universal flying will make all of us neighbors, and as sure as the steamboat and railroad are universal, the airplane will be,” he writes.
