Thomas Herbert Russell (1862-1947) was an American author and Charter Member of the Aero Club of Illinois. His works include: Automobile Driving Self-Taught (1909), Automobile Motors and Mechanism (1909), Ignition, Timing and Valve Setting (1909), Flying Machines (with Octave Chanute & William James Jackman) (1910), Canadian Commercial Law and Legal Forms (with William James Jackman) (1910), Salesmanship: Theory and Practice (1910), Commercial Law and Legal Forms (with William James Jackman) (1910), Advertising Methods and Mediums (1910). Octave Chanute (1832-1910) was a French-born American railroad engineer and aviation pioneer. He provided the Wright brothers with help and advice, and helped to publicize their flying experiments. He designed and built the Hannibal Bridge which was the first bridge to cross the Missouri River in Kansas City, Missouri in 1869. He published this as a series of articles first published in The Railroad and Engineering Journal from 1891 to 1893, and collected together in Progress in Flying Machine in 1894. This was the first organised, written collection of aviation research.
