Subject: RE: Origins: Into the Air (Junior Birdmen)
Jeri's Wikipedia link says The Junior Birdmen of America was a national organization for boys and girls interested in aviation and model plane building, founded (ca. 1934) and promoted by the Hearst newspaper chain, with the cooperation of the U.S. Bureau of Air Commerce.

I hadn't known of the Hearst connection. So, this was all a promo for Hearst's newspapers?
