Description
Full Text

The crash of an airplane near Inglewood, Calif., on August 29, caused the death of Eugene E. Drury, twenty-two year old grandson of Mrs. Horace G. Drury, 618 Central avenue, Wilmette, and brought to an untimely close the devoted companionship of the youth and his father, George E. Drury, eldest son of Mrs. Drury.

Since the death of the youth’s mother several years ago, father and son had been inseparable. Mr. Drury had about fifty hours of solo flying to his credit and held a private license. He was putting in more hours in an effort to qualify for a transport license when his plane went into a tail spin and crashed. The “stick,” by means of which the ship was piloted, was driven into his body below the heart and caused his death a few minutes after the accident.

Mr. Drury was engaged to marry Miss Catherine Johnson of Pasadena and they were to have been married next June. He was at hone time a radio operator on the liner Calawaii and a purser on a western air express line.
