Beauty Icon: Ann Bonfoey Taylor

Born in 1910 in an affluent suburb of Philadelphia, Ann Bonfoey Taylor moved around America all her life. An avid tennis player, she was raised in Illinois, where she took up an interest in aeronautics at an age when most children are learning how to read. By World War II, she had become a licensed pilot and a flight instructor for students in the army and navy.
