This Tuesday Maureen Whalen will re-create Blanche Stuart Scott. Blanche drove an automobile across the US in 1910 and also that same year became the first woman to pilot an airplane. I wrote this long blog post on Blanche in 2013. Although Blanche accomplished a lot she may have exaggerated her story in her later years. Hopefully Ms. Whalen will be able to sort out the facts.
Ms Whalen’s talk is put on by the Greece Historical Society at the Greece Public Library, 2 Vince Tofany Blvd. at 7:p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 10th. Admission for members of the Society is free. Non-members are asked for a small donation.
