Biographical / Historical:
Glenn L. Martin (1886-1955) was an early aviator and aircraft designer. Beginning in 1910, he quickly broke many flight records and designed and manufactured aircraft for both governments and private individuals. In 1916, he formed Wright-Martin Aircraft Aircraft Co., which included ownership of the Simplex Automobile Co. Moving his aircraft from Los Angeles to Cleveland, he continued to design and manufacture aircraft. Later, he moved his plant to the Baltimore area, where maintained the largest privately owned aircraft business in the world.
