Dorothy Rice met Waldo in Spain where she was studying art. The war came and Waldo stayed in Europe to drive ambulances. Dorothy went home, resolved to get into the war. She would fly! 
On August 1916, Dorothy trained on a Wright biplane, passed her tests and qualified for license # 561 at Mineola, New York, 
She became the tenth American woman to obtain her air-pilot license. She also was the first woman to ride a motorcycle. Dorothy was a painter, sculptress, writer, and one of the country’s best known bridge players. 
What a Lady!

- Not a bit. I was scared to death  most of the time. It was all too unreal to penetrate to the consciousness
