Starling Burgess

Massachusetts yacht designer and builder (three Americas Cup winners and other designs that greatly advanced yacht design), aeroplane designer (he built the Wright brothers’ planes under license, and designed seaplanes for the US Navy), experimental car designer (the three-wheeled aerodynamic Dymaxion with R.

His daughter is Tasha Tudor (b. 1915), the writer and illustrator of children’s books.
