Caption: Katherine Stinson (1891-1977), US aviator, in Tokyo, Japan. Stinson qualified as a pilot in 1912, the fourth woman in the USA to do so. On 18 July 1915, she became the first woman to perform a loop. She carried airmail on her flights, and during World War I she flew to raise money for the ambulance services. She contracted tuberculosis in 1920, and retired from aviation. In her later years, she worked as an architect. Photograph from the Bain News Service.
