Portrait of John J. MontgomeryJohn Joseph Montgomery (1858 – 1911) was an American inventor, physicist, engineer, and professor at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California. In the early 1880s Montgomery began studying the anatomy of a variety of large soaring birds to determine their basic characteristics, like wing area, total weight and curved surfaces. He made detailed observations of birds in flight, especially large soaring birds such as eagles, hawks, vultures and pelicans which soared on thermals near San Diego Bay. His gliding experiments of the 1880s are considered by some historians and organizations to have been the first controlled flights of a heavier-than-air flying machine in America (Wikipedia).
