Cal Rodgers, a prominent figure in the exhibit, Progressive Appleton: Through the Lens of W.D. Schlafer, performed simple aerobatics and flew out over Lake Winnebago. He won a race with an automobile on Appleton's College Avenue and took aloft the first Wisconsin women to fly. Learn about a famous flight Rodgers would make later that year.
