Vol. 2 No. 3 ……. Cover: This month’s cover was painted for Sea Power by L. H. Greer, who, though self-taught except for six months of formal art training at the National Academy of Design, has made a name for himself in the world of advertising art. Born in Schenectady, he became interested in airplanes when an Army “DH-4” was forced down on a farm near the General Electric Company plant where he was then working. As an aviation enthusiast, he likes living at Hempstead, Long Island, where nearby Mitchel Field and Roosevelt Field provide planes to study and sketch. For the last twelve years he has specialized in paintings of aircraft. Following are the planes which appear on the cover. 1. Curtiss P-36 pursuit; 2. Vought F4U-I, world’s fastest naval fighter plane; 3. Curtiss P-40 pursuit and interceptor; 4. Vought SO2U-I, naval scout observation plane; 5. Bell YFM-1, “Airacuda” fighter; 6.
