Fact 1Frederik Walker (Casey) Baldwin was posthumously inducted into the Canadian Aviation Hall of fame upon its creation. 
Fact 1From the Pembroke Daily Observer, Nov. 8, 2008

HALIFAX -On a crisp winter day 100 years ago, a team of aspiring aeronautical pioneers rolled an unusual contraption out onto the ice of Keuka Lake.
Nervously rubbing his hands, Casey Baldwin inhaled a deep breath of frosty air and then climbed into the cockpit of what was then called a "heavier-than-air machine."
The fledgling Aerial Experiment Association (AEA) had come to the ice covered shores off Hammondsport, New York to test its inaugural aircraft, the "Red Wing" -a biplane constructed out of bamboo wood and red silk.
It was not the lake, however, that drew them to upstate New York, but a man named Glenn Curtiss. The American businessman, who became a partner in the Canadian aeronautical research group, manufactured single cylinder internal combustion engines. The association was trying to solve the biggest problem of early flight -the power-to-weight ratio. They believed the Curtiss engine was the answer.
Sitting in the pilot's seat, an ordinary kitchen chair with the legs sawed off, Mr. Baldwin shouted instructions to the ground crew. As they pushed the Red Wing on its runners, the little engine fired. With the motor at full throttle, the craft lifted off, sailed effortlessly for 319 feet (97 metres) and then landed without incident.
The second flight, some 120 feet, ended in a crash, but it didn't matter. On March 12, 1908, Frederick Walker "Casey" Baldwin made history becoming the first Canadian to escape gravity and pilot an airplane. At the same time, the AEA had accomplished another important milestone. While few saw the Wright Brothers fly at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina five years earlier, the Red Wing's two jaunts into the air were the first public demonstrations of power aircraft flight in the United States.
Here in the Ottawa Valley, Casey Baldwin will forever be linked to the test flights of the Silver Dart at Camp Petawawa back in the summer of 1909. He and fellow engineering student John Douglas McCurdy conducted the first passenger flight in Canada at Petawawa.
As we approach the centennial of the Silver Dart's historic flight, one man says few appreciate what Mr. Baldwin's greatest accomplishment in aviation was. Yet, no aircraft, from a Cessna to the latest Airbus, could fly without his invention.
"The aileron is the greatest contribution to aviation," insists Casey Baldwin, the grandson of the late engineer and pilot.
Discussing his grandfather's legacy with The Daily Observer, Mr. Baldwin says he can understand historians overlooking the aileron. The 65-year-old grew up learning all about the man he still calls "Casey" and the storied friendship his grandfather had with Canada's greatest scientist, Alexander Graham Bell.
"I realized by the age of 10 the extraordinary things that granddad had worked on with his friend, Dr. Bell," Mr. Baldwin remarks with an air of poignancy.
Sitting in his Halifax apartment, he sips his second cup of coffee of the day and leafs through some old records cataloguing his grandfather's accomplishments.
It's a family connection that Mr. Baldwin continues to foster. Although he rarely grants interviews, the veteran newsman occasionally assists documentary filmmakers and lends his expertise to museums and aeronautical associations. He still maintains the family home on the grounds of the famous Bell estate at Beinn Bhreagh near Baddeck, Nova Scotia.
It was here on the shores of the Bras d'Or Lake that the AEA was formed. In 1906, Frederick Baldwin, then 24, graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in electrical and mechanical engineering and moved to Baddeck to work for Dr. Bell. The AEA charter was written after Dr. Bell's wife, Mabel, agreed to finance the venture with $20,000 of her own money. It was an investment that paid off.
Ailerons, the hinged control surfaces attached to the trailing of the wing on an aircraft, are used to control the plane in a roll. The lack of lateral control complicated the flight of the Red Wing. The AEA intended to correct this with the plane's successor, the "White Wing".
Three months after his historic flight, he was ready to test the aileron theory. Strapped in a harness, Mr. Baldwin piloted the craft using a joystick to control the aircraft. A yoke attached to the harness maneouvred flaps, or ailerons, at the end of each wing. When the pilot leaned to the right, the aileron on the left wing eased down allowing the biplane to execute a right bank.
Mr. Baldwin calls his grandfather's early flights at Hammondsport the "critical breakthrough" that made aviation what it is today. Unfortunately, Mr. Curtiss engaged in a major multi-million dollar legal battle with Orville and Wilbur Wright over the patent for the aileron. The case was still in the courts by 1917 when a settlement was reached whereby the U. S. government bought both parties out to make the patent universal.
Mr. Baldwin notes the ailerons used by the Wright Brothers were crude in comparison.
"Instead of the elegant little ailerons invented by the AEA, the Wright brothers twisted or warped the entire wing," he explains. "They needed a complex system to twist the wings in either direction."
His grandfather followed up the White Wing with construction of the "June Bug", which won him the prestigious Scientific American Award for making the first official onekilometre flight in North America. It was the AEA's next project, and Mr. Baldwin's fourth airplane, that garnered the most attention, especially in Canada.
The Silver Dart actually flew 10 times at Hammondsport after its initial flight on Dec. 6, 1908. Then, Dr. Bell ordered Mr. Baldwin and Mr. McCurdy to ship the craft to Baddeck.
"Dr. Bell wanted one of the machines flown in Canada," explains Mr. Baldwin.
On Feb. 23, 1909, the Silver Dart made the first controlled powered flight in Canada, and within the British Dominion, when it soared for half a mile over Bras d'Or Lake. Mr. McCurdy was at the controls.
In 1959, Mr. Baldwin watched a re-enactment of that famous flight. Broadcast live on CBC television, he remembers locals and dignitaries crowding the shores to catch a glimpse of the Silver Dart replica, piloted by Royal Canadian Air Force pilot Paul Hartling.
"It was a howling blizzard," he recalls. "He took off in this vicious crosswind, got up 150 feet and was nailed by a gust. The plane crashed on its starboard wing, but the pilot walked away."
Although the AEA disbanded after the Silver Dart's Bras d'Or Lake appearance, Mr. Baldwin's grandfather and Mr. McCurdy ploring the possibilities of powered flight. They built two additional planes, the "Baddeck I" and the "Baddeck II" and prevailed upon the federal government to observe tests of their aircraft hoping they would recognize their military value. Those tests were scheduled for the summer at the newly established Camp Petawawa. As Mr. Baldwin notes, however, his grandfather had a tough selling job.
"Few in high places in Ottawa were interested in the demonstrations for the general opinion was that airplanes were of little practical use in warfare," explains Mr. Baldwin.
Petawawa was a less than suitable site, however, the partners accepted the Militia Department's invitation to conduct the tests there. The sandy landing strip at the camp would prove difficult for the aircraft, now equipped with landing gears made of two-inch tires.
"The sandy terrain at Petawawa was quite unfit for these early vintage machines," adds Mr. Baldwin. "In spite of these handicaps, four successful flights were accomplished."
Shortly after 5 a. m. on Aug. 2, 1909, the Silver Dart, with Mr. McCurdy piloting, floated down the open field and rose into the air attaining a speed of 40 miles an hour. Military brass and a small crowd of bureaucrats observed the initial flight with interest. After the biplane landed, Mr. Baldwin joined McCurdy in turning the craft around, and then jumped on board behind the pilot for a second sojourn into the skies, rising 10 feet off the ground. Little did they know that they were making the first passenger flight in Canadian history.
"They fought so hard to get one man up," Mr. Baldwin says of the unexpected milestone his grandfather achieved at Petawawa. "Getting two men up was notable. I mean now the new Airbus-180 can carry 600 people."
The two men made a third flight (with a mechanic also on board) and then a fourth. When Mr. McCurdy tried to land after the fifth flight, one of the plane's wheels struck a knoll. The right wing touched the ground and was torn from the undercarriage. While the partners were uninjured in the crash, the damage had been done. The Silver Dart never flew again.
A few days later, the two men and their technicians assembled the Baddeck I. On Aug. 12, the plane made one flight with the deputy minister of defence watching. Like the Silver Dart, it was heavily damaged upon landing. That ended the Petawawa demonstrations, however, military officials were impressed enough to recommend the government actively pursue the formation of a Canadian air force. Although it took politicians a little longer to act on the recommendation, Mr. Baldwin feels his grandfather's work set the groundwork.
"Even though official Ottawa was shortsighted, the Petawawa military trials made a vital contribution to both the civilian and military explosion in aircraft development," he notes.
After Petawawa, Mr. Baldwin's grandfather turned his attention to the water. Coming from a seafaring family, he sought to make seagoing travel much faster. The inspiration for the hydrofoil, what Mr. Baldwin still calls his grandfather's most notable scientific contribution, came during a world-wide trip the Baldwins, Casey and wife Cathlene, took with the Bells.
"While sitting at an Italian waterfront café, they saw the most amazing sight. A motorboat roared by them with its hull on stilts," Mr. Baldwin explained.
The contraption, driven by a man named Enrico Forlanini, fascinated the two inventors. They took rides on the "the Forlanini boat" and decided this would be their next project. Returning to Baddeck, they began experimenting with boats that used ladders, or hydrofoils. The principal is that as the craft increases its speed the hydrofoils raise the boat's hull out of the water thus reducing the boat's drag.
Their efforts resulted in the HD-4 Hydrofoil. On the first test of the HD-4, Mr. Baldwin achieved a speed of 87 kilometres an hour. The craft accelerated rapidly, steered well and was stable. Dr. Bell submitted test results to the United States navy who gave him two 260-kilowatt (350 horsepower) engines.
On Sept. 19, 1919, the HD-4 set a world marine speed record of 114 kilometres an hour, a milestone that stood for 10 years. Although it was not a commercial success, Mr. Baldwin ilding watercraft and experimenting with hydrofoils after Dr. Bell's death in 1921. He was elected to Nova Scotia's provincial legislature in 1933.
Today, Mr. Baldwin has no strong memories of his grandfather, who died in 1948. He does, however, recall his grandfather's passing with some clarity. He remembers that summer flying into Baddeck from Seattle, Washington, where his family resided at the time. Mr. Baldwin, then five years old, raced into the house at Beinn Bhreagh not knowing that his grandfather had passed away while they were in transit.
"With great excitement, I ran into granddad's study. I was shocked to a standstill," he recalls. "On his beautiful old drafting table where he designed so many aircraft and hydrofoils was a large wooden coffin."
Mr. Baldwin steered clear of the family business deciding instead to embark on a remarkable career in journalism. He has been employed in all three disciplines, print, radio and television. He worked as a cub reporter on London's Fleet Street and also enjoyed stints at the CBC, CTV and Maclean's magazine.
Mr. Baldwin has interviewed many prolific figures in his time. He recalls talking with Pierre Trudeau when the incumbent prime minister was running for re-election in 1972. Standing underneath a tree in a fruit grove in British Columbia, Mr. Trudeau joggled apples during the entire interview. Mr. Baldwin found that Mr. Trudeau possessed one of the greatest intellects he'd ever seen.
He also remembers American businessman Ted Turner telling him in 1977 he was toying with starting up an all-news network. The idea eventually became the Cable News Network or CNN. However, his proudest piece was an interview he did with the late Carl Sagan, whom he once shadowed during the Pugwash Conference on Science and World Affairs.
"I squeezed his brain for all it was worth," Mr. Baldwin notes.
Mr. Baldwin did embrace the family's natural love of the sea. An avid racer, he once sailed with the America's Cup Team and has crossed the North Atlantic twice -solo.
This month, he plans to navigate the Atlantic's autumn gales when he joins a crew for a sailing expedition from Halifax to Rhode Island.
No matter the adventures he undertakes, Mr. Baldwin always remembers his famous namesake, the grandfather who challenged science and made his contribution to Canadian and world history.
"In the past, you would hear an Englishman say 'he was an allrounder'," smiles Mr. Baldwin leaning back in his chair. "Well, Casey was a remarkable allrounder."

Fact 1*Baldwin, Robert (1804-1858), states-man, was born at York ( Toronto ), Upper Canada , on May 12, 1804 , the eldest son of William Warren Baldwin and Phoebe Willcocks. He was educated at the Home District Grammar School, studied law under his father, and was called to the bar of Upper Canada in 1825. In 1829 he was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada, but at the general elections of 1830 he was defeated, and he did not again sit in the legislature until after the Union of 1841. His ability and his high character, however, early won for him a general esteem; and in 1836 he was appointed by Sir Francis Bond Head to the Executive Council of Upper Canada. His tenure of office lasted less than four weeks (February 20-March 12), as the result of a disagreement with the lieutenant-governor which brought about the resignation of the whole council. Later in the year, when in England, he submitted to the Colonial Office a memorandum in which, for the first time, the project of responsi­ble government in Canada was fully and clearly elaborated. With the wing of the Reform party led by W. L. Mackenzie he had never, however, much sympathy; and it was significant that during the rebellion of 1837, Head confided to him the task of parleying with the rebels.
 
In February, 1840, Baldwin was persuaded by Poulett Thomson to accept the post of solicitor-general of Upper Canada, and in February, 1841, he became solicitor-general of Canada West, with a seat in the Executive Council. At the same time he was elected as a Reformer to represent Hastings in the Assembly; and when the governor-general declined to reconstruct the administration to accord with the views of the Reformers, Baldwin resigned from the Council, and went into oppo­sition. In September, 1841, he intro­duced into the Assembly a series of resolutions in favour of responsible government; and when the government was defeated in the House in September, 1842, it was to Baldwin that the new governor, Sir Charles Bagot turned to form an administration. Together with Louis Lafontaine, Baldwin formed a ministry-known as the first Baldwin-Lafontaine administration-which held office until the crisis of November 26, 1843 , when nine of the ten ministers resigned in consequence of a disagreement with Sir Charles Metcalfe. From 1843 to 1848 Baldwin was in opposition; but the defeat of the Draper government in the general elections of 1847 led to the formation in 1848 of the second Baldwin-Lafontaine administration, sometimes called "The Great Ministry". It was under this administration that the principle of responsible government in Canada was finally and indisputably established. Always a moderate Reformer, Baldwin found, however, as time went on, that he was out of sympathy with many of his more radical supporters; and when, in the session of 1851, a resolution favouring the abolition of his own creation, the Court of Chancery, was carried by a majority of Upper Canadian votes, he resigned from office. At the subsequent election, in 1851, he was defeated in North York by a considerable majority; and he thereupon retired to private life. In 1854 he gave his approval to the formation of the union of the Conservatives and the "Baldwin Liberals" in what came to be known as the Liberal Conservative party. The same year he was created a C.B.-a somewhat paltry recognition of his public services.
 
He died in Toronto on December 9, 1858. In 1827 he married his cousin, Augusta Elizabeth (d. 1836), daughter of Daniel Sullivan; and by her he had two sons and two daughters. The Baldwin papers are in the Toronto Public Library. (from The Quebec History Encyclopedia.) 
Fact 1In 1914, a statute commemorating Robert Baldwin and Sir Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine was erected on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

In 1797 he received a medical degree from the University of Edinburgh and two years later he emigrated to Upper Canada settling in York, (Toronto). An accomplished man of boundless energy and diverse interests, Baldwin practised both law and medicine and was twice elected to the provincial assembly. He is best remembered, however; as an ardent advocate of constitutional reform. A leading proponent of “responsible government”, one of the most important political concepts in Canadian history. Baldwin steadfastly supported his son, Robert (Baldwin) under whose premiership (1842-1851) this principle was eventually attained.” “Plaque: Dedicated by Ontario Heritage- Canada Ministry of Citizenship.”
