  Flying Wings : An Anthology : Louis Pierre Mouillard (1834 - 1897)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Louis Pierre Mouillard was an inspiration to many who engaged in aerial pursuits in the last part of the 19th Century.
Mouillard carried on a correspondence with Octave Chanute and...regarding aluminum, Mouillard observed "It is the metal for aviation" (July 21, 1891).
Mouillard underrates, perhaps, the value of mathematical investigation, and he sometimes errs in his explanation of physical phenomena; but his observations are unrivaled, and they are presented with a particularity of circumstance, a vivacity and a charm which photograph them at once on the mind of the reader.

 Chanute-Mouillard Correspondence, Appendix   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Apparently Mouillard was unable to reply to the letter from Octave Chanute dated 20 May 1897.
It is with regret that I come to give you pain by announcing that our mutual friend and colleague, M. Mouillard, departed this life the 20th of this month at 3 o'clock in the morning and at the same day was taken to his last resting place.
Mouillard were, it is true of little practicality, but his observations and his writings were, to my mind, of great value and his death leaves a void.

Mouillard was so lost in thought, and the ash was getting so long, that a young student--of the age that knows no mercy-was struck by these twin phenomena.
Mouillard emitted a sigh, turned slowly round, and bent two terrible eyes upon the intruder, knocked off the ash with an angry gesture, and held out the ignited end at arm's length.
Mouillard, and is already tackling the brief; which is as much as to say that he is fierce, unbridled, heartless, and without remorse.

 FLYING MACHINES - Louis Pierre Mouillard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Mouillard was a visionary who also built and tested experimental devices of his own design.
Despite his lack of significant practical success, Mouillard was and is held in high regard as one of the most thoughtful and insightful aerial investigators of his time.
The influence of Mouillard's treatise was very powerful, although it seems his profound effect on aerial research has been largely forgotten, as have many other signifcant and highly influential philosopher-scientist-experimenters of the period.

Counsellor Mouillard has finished his pleadings and must be sitting down to a game of whist with Counsellors Horlet and Hublette, of the Court of Bourges.
From the second of January to the second of November she is a human creature tied to a bell-rope, with an immovably stolid face and a monosyllabic vocabulary in which politer terms occur but sparsely.
Mouillard, his most elementary notions of life shaken to their foundations, concludes in these words: "Fabien, I have long suspected it; some creature has you in bondage.

 Writings of the Wright Brothers: What Mouillard Did, by Wilbur Wright   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Chanute of dishonestly getting from Mouillard the secret of warping the wings to control lateral balance, and transmitting it to the Wright brothers, it is well to expose their errors.
The Mouillard patent was cited by the defendants in the case of The Wright Company- vs. Louis Paulhan, and Judge Hand in his decision refers specifically to it and says, "In no one of the nineteen claims is there anything which in any way even foreshadows the patent [of the Wright brothers] in suit." Mr.
The memory of Mouillard is well deserving of perpetuation by a monument, but it is a pity that it should have been used by a self-constituted group of pretended champions of French glory, in a disgraceful Chauvinistic campaign of slander and detraction not approved by the mass of the French people.

Louis-Pierre Mouillard was the author of Empire of the Air, a wonderful work on ornithology (bird flight).
One of the four pamphlets the Smithsonian sent Wilbur in 1899 was an extract (small portion) of Mouillard's book.
Chanute provided Mouillard funding to file a U.S. patent on Mouillard's system of turning, which required the rear part of the wing to turn down.

These translations of the correspondence between Octave Chanute and Louis-Pierre Mouillard are not intended for highly technical usage.
For such a purpose the letter-press copies of Chanute's letters and the original Mouillard replies should be consulted.
Their retention in France was apparently intended to forestall any denial of the ridiculous charges made by a few chauvinistic Frenchmen to the effect that Chanute had made a dupe of Mouillard and stolen his ideas so that an American, not a Frenchman, would be the first to fly.

The other strategy was to claim "anticipation" by early pioneers such as Louis-Pierre Mouillard.
As an example of the latter, the French claimed that Mouillard was the true father of wingwarping.
The truth of the matter is that Mouillard's plan was to use a form of wing twisting to slow the wing on one side relative to the other for the purpose of steering in a flat turn.

Years later, however, Orville recalled that what really aroused the Wrights’ interest in aviation was “the reading of a book on ornithology.” Both Wilbur and Orville would mention this book in their diaries more than once, but never by name, and its identity remains a mystery.
Some scholars feel it was not a “book” at all, but rather a pamphlet of translated excerpts of “L’Empire de l’Air” by Louis-Pierre Mouillard, a panegyric (a WHAT?) on bird flight which appeared in the Smithsonian Annual Report in 1892.
Wilbur would later call the book “one of the most remarkable pieces of aeronautical literature ever published.” The truth is, however, “L ‘Empire” was never completely translated into English…and Wilbur could not read French.
