… that today is the Caterpillar Club Birthday? In 1922, Lieutenant Harold Harris bailed out of his crippled test plane at Dayton, Ohio, but was saved by using a parachute. He thus became the first member of the Caterpillar Club (people saved by parachutes). The name “Caterpillar Club” refers to the silk threads that made the original parachutes, thus recognizing the debt owed to the silkworm. “Life depends on a silken thread” is the club’s motto.
