The Barnstormer and the Lady
This is the story of Walter and Olive Ann Beech, the remarkable couple whose careers spanned virtually the entire history of American aviation. It is also the story of a marriage, a marriage of opposites. Walter was a charming rascal, a hard-living barnstormer. Olive Ann was a shy small-town Kansas girl who hid that shyness behind an imperious manner and a backbone of steel.Together they founded Beech Aircraft Corp. in the teeth of the Great Depression and guided their company to fame and fortune.
