  Katherine & Marjorie Stinson, Pioneer Aviatrices
Stinson received her license on July 24, 1912, and one year later she began her exhibition career in Cincinnati, Ohio, flying a Wright B. The postcard at right (courtesy Gord Mallett in Alberta) was taken at Calgary Alberta on 9 July 1918 just prior to her air mail flight to Edmonton.
Stinson became known as "The Flying Schoolmarm" and her students as "The Texas Escadrille." The school closed at the end of the war in 1918 and Stinson became a draftsman with the Aeronautical Division of the U.S. Navy.
Stinson was licensed as a pilot in 1912 when aviation was in its infancy, planes were quite primitive, and women were grounded as homemakers.

 Stinson Aircraft Corporation
The Stinson Reliant was a rugged aircraft built of fabric-covered welded steel-tubing structures with a single strut-braced double-tapered wing, and one of the last of the “taildraggers” (an airplane lacking a nose-wheel so it looked like its tail dragged when taxiing).
Another popular Stinson aircraft was the Model 105 Voyager, a three-passenger airplane featuring a strut-braced wing mounted on the top of the fuselage and capable of flying at about 120 miles per hour (193 kilometers per hour).
The Stinson SR-10 Reliant was also transformed for use in World War II as the UC-81, used by the U.S. Army as a utility aircraft, and the AT-19/V-77, used by the British Royal Navy for a passenger transport, instrument trainer and photo-reconnaissance aircraft.

 Stinson Beach County Water District - Hydrologic Survey - Executive Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Stinson Beach is a community of approximately 650 residences on the California coast that relies on onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems.
Specifically, groundwater flow from the oceanside portions of Stinson Beach, Old Town, and Highlands areas generally is toward the ocean, while flow from the remaining portions of Seadrift, Calles, and Patios is toward Bolinas Lagoon.
Implementation of a STEP system in Stinson Beach will require cooperative efforts with the federal government, and potentially could be done in a way that would improve the existing waste disposal practices within the park itself.

 Stinson SR-10
This merger allowed Stinson to offer its aircraft at lower prices and still develop new designs, the 1931 Model W and the 1932 Model R-2/3 series, the direct forebears of the famous Reliant series.
In 1933, Stinson delivered the SR-1 and SR-2, and with a progression of refinements and engine upgrades, the series continued from the SR-4 to, in 1938, the SR-10.
Stinson later produced 500 military versions of the Reliants as the AT-19/V-77 for the British Royal Navy which used them mostly as instrument trainers along with utility passenger carrier and photo-reconnaissance work.
