Mrs. G.B.Van Dusen

Your story, "Are you a Short Snorter," was found on the web by my son-in-law. One "short snorter" was my dear husband who started Van Dusen Air Inc.after graduating from the University of Virginia. The company grew to be the largest in the world and, sadly,it was taken over by some New York Raiders in 1985-6, and GB died in 1999. GB once showed me one of his "short snorters." I was his second wife and now I shall ask his children who owns those prized possessions. And yes, he knew Jimmy Doolittle and was well known in the up=and-coming aviation community. Of all things, Van Dusen Air, Inc. was instrumental in starting China Airlines!
