The Very Dapper Pee Wee Cullen
Anthony Fokker, nicknamed the Flying Dutchman, at age 22. He was a Dutch engineer and skilled aviator, often credited with developing the synchronization device which allowed planes to fire through spinning propellers in midair.
From 1888 until his death in 1897, “Owney” the dog rode with Railway Mail Service clerks and mailbags all across the nation.
The Railway Mail Service clerks adopted Owney as their unofficial mascot, marking his travels by placing medals and tags from his stops on his collar. By the early 1890s, the traveling postal dog was a regular feature in newspapers across the country as Owney visited town after town.
