Description: In 1939, a civilian operation called the Embry-Riddle Company was established. Just a few short years later during World War II, the Embry-Riddle Company would find itself on the national stage assisting in the war effort to train people and future pilots both foreign and domestic. Biscayne Bay, Florida hosted the beginning of a new era in aeronautics training and civilian companies dedicating their business and efforts to the war. Author Stephen G. Craft writes about the history of the Embry-Riddle Company and Florida’s significant role in its expansion and success in Embry Riddle at War. Join us for a look back at the role this prestigious company played in World War II and Florida’s history. Book sale and signing will follow the program.
