Nancy Lynn Mess is the 2011 winner of the Harriett Quimby Award from the Michigan Aviation Hall of Fame. This award acknowledges significant contributions for the history of flight through art or literature.

Nancy has been surrounded from birth by environments filled with mechanical engineering. She is a successful author of local history books about her home town of Lanesboro, Pa. and Susquehanna County, Pa., as well as family genealogies officially on record at the Susquehanna County Historical Society for the family surnames of Mess, Mass, Bohn, Blessing, Stanley, and Brown.

Another project for her hometown was to create a pictorial history, which includes the building of three Erie Railroad bridges: Cascade Viaduct, Starrucca Viaduct, and Canawacta Creek Viaduct. To accompany that display she prepared a DVD with narrative to provide background about each of those eighty images.

Having a natural talent to seek out historical details and obscure data, Nancy has the unique tools to accurately determine fact from fiction and then tell this captivating pioneer aviation story of Osbert “O. E.” Williams and his associates.

With research that has spanned more than sixteen years, Nancy has successfully pieced together a massive volume of data about 58 men and women who shared a common passion for the thrilling and daring adventure of flying during the pioneer days of aviation.
