99 NEWS Magazine
On the Cover:
Although Elizabeth 'Beth' Ulysses Grant Mc-Queen never became a pilot, she was considered the "arch godmother of aviation.” Her lifelong mission was to secure world peace through a network of women, words and wings. Beth played an important role in the public's acceptance of aviation in general and more specifically, women pilots. She was often in the company of Dick McQueen, her trained parrot who entertained the troops by whistling reveille and taps and singing songs.
