WERER. Michael

Affidavit, September 24, 1934

I, Michael Werer, residing at 824 Wordin Avenue, do depose and say that I was personally acquainted with the late Gustave Whitehead and was associated (or employed by) with him during his experiments with heavier than air flying machines.

On about Sept or Oct 1901 I was present on the occasion when Mr. Whitehead succeeded in flying his machine, propelled by motor on a flight of about four hundred feet, at about six feet off the ground, for a length of time approximating half minute.

The type of machine used by Mr. Whitehead was a folding wing Monoplane. This flight took place on Tunxis Hill Road near Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport Connecticut.
