CHATLOS, William

Stella Randolph typed notes, January 4, 1936

Mr. William Chatlos was in his office at 1341 West Board Street in Stratford, and not too eager to see me. He said his father had put a few hundred dollars into Whitehead's work, but got nothing from it. He said one plane did to [go] up about five or six feet, but the flight lasted only about 200 feet - there was nothing to it. He saw it do this, and thinks it must have been summer time when it occurred. He thinks a gasoline engine was used. I was a biplane with pretty much the same for as the present planes he thinks. He said he would be willing to make affidavit, but only if I would promise absolutely to keep his name out of the story. I promised to do this.
