(Witness) CensusBlanche Ellen Wilbur appeared on the census of May 1940 in the household of Cortland Taylor Hill in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California, United States
Death*Blanche Ellen Wilbur died on 15 December 1987 in Pasadena, Los Angeles County, California, United States, at age 82; A pioneering aviation enthusiast who helped found two early aircraft industry companies and a technical training school has died in her Pasadena home.

Blanche Wilbur Hill, an Idaho-born philanthropist and socialite who obtained her pilot's license in 1931, when few women had even been in an airplane, was 85. She was first married to George Randolph Hearst, the eldest son of publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst, and later married Cortland Taylor Hill, grandson of railroad magnate James J. Hill.

In 1927, her family said, the 25-year-old woman joined engineer John K. Northrop in helping to start Avion Corp., which manufactured early all-metal aircraft. Her mother, Ada Chadwick Wilbur, was vice president of the Los Angeles company.

That same year, she joined her father-in-law, Hearst, in sponsoring an entry in the Dole Derby, a perilous Oakland-to-Honolulu race. Ten of the 15 competitors were lost at sea, including the Hearst entry, the Golden Eagle--a wooden monoplane--and its two-man crew.

In 1933, she became founding president of Northill, an aircraft development and manufacturing company that merged with the Garrett Corp. in 1940, her family said. She also founded and headed the Aeronautical Industry Technical Institute, a training firm for aircraft industry workers.

She was born in Twin Falls, Ida., and attended Sullins College in Virginia and UC Berkeley.

During her nine-year marriage to Hearst, she had twins, George Hearst Jr., former publisher of the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, and Phoebe Millicent Cooke, now of Woodside.

In 1934 she married Hill, and the couple helped organize skiing events at both the 1948 and 1952 Winter Olympics. They were divorced in 1952.

During World War II, she headed the Los Angeles division of the Motor Corps for the American Red Cross and worked with Nurses' Aides, organizing the first class of junior nurses' aides in the country.

Hill took part in Republican Party politics, serving on the National Republican Congressional Committee and the U.S. Senatorial Club.

Her civic and charitable work included the Junior League and the local chapter of Recordings for the Blind.

Besides her son and daughter, she is survived by six grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and a sister.
