Airport Eponyms by MeyerS

Question 10

This businessman and aviator competed as a golfer in the 1900 and 1904 Olympics (the only time golf has been included as an official Olympic sport) and was on the silver-medal-winning team. He became president of the family business, a pharmaceutical company which made Listerine and which merged with Warner-Hudnut in 1955. (The resulting company was later acquired by Pfizer in 2000.) As an aviator and aviation booster, he backed his friend Charles Lindbergh's New York to Paris flight in 1927, and he developed his namesake airport and sold it to the city in 1928, making it the first municipally-owned airport in the United States.
