November 24, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Cliff Henderson’s biography covers over eighty years of one man’s fascinating life. His contributions to aviation were phenomenal. As Managing Director for the National Air Races, Cliff created a ‘laboratory of the industry’ which provided an international platform for faster airplanes, more reliable motors, and safer transportation. But it didn’t stop there, in 1945; Cliff envisioned a city that would have the ‘smartest address in the American desert.’ Less than 20 years later, the city of Palm Desert had arrived. Learn about this titan of the aviation age, program to be followed by a book sale and signing.
