On this day, Harriet Quimby

Skill + Do

Harriet Quimby did a lot of living in her short life and spewed confidence and courage wherever she went and whatever she did.

Harriet Quimby was only on this planet for 37 years, but she had a massive impact on the early era of aviation.

Harriet was born in 1875 as a pioneering American aviator, journalist, and film screenwriter. (You GO girl.) Being the first U.S. woman to earn her pilot’s license was not enough for Harriet; she needed to be the first woman to fly across the English Channel. (Again, GO girl.)

Harriet was a spitfire of activity and achievement. In an age when women were rarely in the limelight, Harriet wrote seven screenplays developed as silent film shorts. She even took a small role in one of them! Harriet moved to Manhattan in 1903 to work as a theater critic and published more than 250 articles over a career that spawned a decade.

But flying was her true love, and she regularly participated in air shows, earning up to $1,500 per show and often attracting 20,000 spectators. Alas, that was what did her in – she crashed in a show near Boston in 1912 and never saw her 38th birthday.

Harriet Quimby did a lot of living in her short life and spewed confidence wherever she went and whatever she did.

"I was annoyed from the start by the attitude of doubt by the spectators that I would never really make the flight. This attitude made me more determined than ever to succeed." Harriet Quimby
