June 5 – Glenn Martin of Macksburg – Aviator and Entrepreneur

JoAnne Walker, local genealogical researcher, will share her work investigating Glenn Martin (1886-1955) who was born in Macksburg and appears on Madison County’s Freedom Rock.  JoAnne will share photos and stories from his adventurous life that included working with the Wright Brothers, barnstorming, designing the Martin Bomber that helped win WWII, and creating corporations that still exist today – Lockhead-Martin and Martin-Marietta.
