LISTENING PROJECT: Bill & Carol Stedman

Carol Stedman interviewed her husband Bill about his childhood in Petersburg. He tells a charming story about how he and his dog Skippy rode around town on his bike, and about flying kites in a blizzard. His kite building ventures gave way to a life in aviation and Bill became a well-respected and busy pilot.

Bill speaks about the famous bush pilots he flew with as a young man and later about flying interesting people all around Southeast, including the movie stars in Petersburg for the filming of “Ice Palace”.
