Ruth Law landing at Governor's Island

Avitrix Ruth Law arriving at Governor's Island, New York, after her flight from Chicago in November 20, 1916.

Ruth Law dressed as military aviator, World War One.

Ms. Law would go on to campaign for allowing women to fly as military pilots during World War One. That idea had clearly not arrived.

Somewhat unusual for  the time for a pilot, she went on to live a long life and died at age 83 in San Francisco.
