Also known as: Tony
These notes are taken from "Down One Diamond" by Michael Fairbanks (c) 1979:
In the early thirties, Tony (Anthony) Fairbanks was one of the founding members of the Cleveland (Ohio) Balloon Club . He was 27 years old and an aeronautical engineer. Other members were Milford F. Vanik and George Hineman. Each owned his own 35,000 cubic foot balloon, and both men had been flying balloons for several years. Tony's introduction to the sport was with Milford Vanik on a ten-hour flight from Cleveland, Ohio, to Buffalo, New York, on September 13, 1931.
