When I began to review the exploits of Albert Forsythe and listen to taped interviews that he had given, I was struck by the magnitude and variety of dangers that he faced--dangers that most of us would not risk. I wondered about the factors that lead a person to take risks despite the fear that is normal. I was also struck by his modesty and the resultant relative obscurity. He has been inducted into the Smithsonian Air Museum and the New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame and received a Post Office cachet in 1999 to commemorate a recreation of his first flight, but still he is unknown to the general public. At first I thought his story would make an exciting special effects movie. On reflection, I opted to write a biography so that proper emphasis could be given to the reasons why he made his flights. Gathering the data from almost 70 years ago was a pleasant challenge.About the Author:
Roger Albert Forsyth is a physician/administrator/educator who has published books and articles in the medical field and also written articles on finance, travel, and medical economics. He was born a few days after his uncle left Jamaica on the fourth leg of his Goodwill Flight to the Caribbean. In recognition of his brothers feat, his father used his brother's first name as the middle name for his new son. In 1953 Roger was taken on a partial recreation of the Goodwill Flight. This plus many similarities in the life histories of Roger and his uncle provided Roger with unusual insight in writing this biography.
