PIONEER OF FLIGHT.
A PROPHET WITHOUT HONOUR.
DEATH OF LAWRENCE
SYDNEY. Tuesday. - Mr. Lawrence Har-
grave, who was a pioneer in aviation, died at his home in Woollahra, Sydney, to-day,
aged 65 years. For 30 years he worked steadily on problems of aerial engineering.
and it is said that his discoveries were used as foundations by others who have become
famous. He offered his models to the Go- vernment, but was told that there was no room for them. Similar indifference was shown in England, so Mr. Hargrave pre- sented them to Germany. They are now in the Deutsch Museum at Munich, and it is believed that the German Taube mono- plane is fashioned upon one of his models.
