Aware of the fame acccorded Revolutionay War heroine Betsy Ross, women pioneer pilots sought to borrow the luster of an original woman warrior. The Betsy Ross Corps was founded in 1931 for national defense and humanitarian relief.  During World War II the Corps morphed in Woman Pilots of America. They were trained to replace male pilots. Very scarce and very impotant in the history of female aviation. Thirties Deco design emphasizes the dash of the Betsy Ross Corps, accentuated by patriotic red, white and blue. 20x13 mint, conservation backed.
