Philip Billard - A Life of Adventure
Doug Wright, historian

Philip Billard, after whom Topeka's Municipal Airport is named, was a man who raced through life - who transitioned from a wild teenager to a war hero and who gave his life for France, his family's homeland, and the United States. Wright shares stories about Billard's flying skills and his adventurous spirit.
