ILHS Presents Evelyn Rose on Aviation Pioneer Daniel John Maloney

ILHS Presents Evelyn Rose on Aviation Pioneer Daniel John Maloney

Evelyn Rose, Project Director and Founder of the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project, will share the amazing life story of Irish American San Francisco aviation pioneer Daniel John Maloney, ancestor of a well-known family in Noe Valley, who began his career as an aeronaut performing at the pleasuring grounds known as Glen Park and the Mission Zoo.

We’ll learn more about Maloney’s transition from Victorian extreme sport athlete to test pilot in the early days of flight discovery. We’ll also be introduced to Professor John J. Montgomery of Santa Clara College (today’s Santa Clara University), a graduate of San Francisco’s St. Ignatius College. Montgomery’s flight innovations and achievements have largely been erased from mainstream history, primarily through the gaslighting efforts by no less than the Wright Brothers and their supporters.

Evelyn Rose, PharmD, moved to San Francisco in 1978 and has been a resident of Glen Park and Diamond Heights in the heart of the City for nearly 30 years. Her interest in historic research began 20 years ago while investigating the life story of two sisters buried in the 1880s on a barren, wind-swept hill in Yellowstone National Park.

Evelyn founded the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project (GPNHP, www.GlenParkHistory.org) in 2014, covering Glen Park, Glen Canyon Park, Sunnyside, Fairmount Heights, and Diamond Heights.  Evelyn serves as Project Director of the GPNHP and continues to research the forgotten histories of the district.

The event is free for members and $5 for non-members.
