Quest for Recognition of a Father’s Invention

Herman L. Grimes, Jr.


Quest for Recognition of a Father’s Invention is about an unsung African-American hero. It is a son’s journey to uphold his father’s legacy. Hermon L. Grimes, Sr., is one of the nation’s best-kept secrets. Mr. Grimes developed the official patent for FOLDING WING AIRCRAFT. U.S. Patent Office Number 2,137,486. The new folding wing aircraft was used extensively in the Pacific theater during World War II. Upon the attack of Pearl Harbor, it was made clear that the Japanese Navy had gained air superiority over the U.S. Navy. This handicap was quickly overcome by the implementation of folding wing aircraft on naval carriers. Hermon L. Grimes helped to revolutionized aviation.

Herman L. Grimes, Sr. received a Purple Heart, yet he died with a broken heart without receiving recognition or compensation for his invention. This is a must-read book for all who seek to right the wrongs of history.
