Hilda Jarmuth Collection

Little is known about Hilda Jarmuth, an early aviatrix who was born on November 22, 1900. She may have been a member of the Ninety-Nines Club, which was founded on November 2, 1929, for the mutual support and advancement of women pilots. She was married to Charles F. Jarmuth in Cook County, Illinois, on June 12, 1923. She was widowed in 1927 when Charles drowned while attempting to rescue her from an undertow. Around 1949, she remarried to his first cousin, Louis T. Jarmuth. While little more is known about her other than she traveled extensively, she passed away in Los Angeles, CA, on July 1, 1976.
