Marvin Krieger: an oral history by Marvin Krieger( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Marvin Krieger was born on March 21, 1914, in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. His father was the president of a coal company and his mother was an entrepreneur who opened her own dress shop in Sharon, Pennsylvania. Krieger's mother was the "breadwinner" of the family. Krieger initially wanted to become a doctor, so he went to college at Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio to study medicine. He learned to fly in Warren Ohio, but did not qualify to become a military pilot at the time due to his poor vision. While taking a vacation from school one summer in Los Angeles, California, Krieger decided to leave Cleveland and complete his education in Los Angeles. He was interested in graphics and animation, and found himself working for Columbia Motion Pictures and later Warner Brothers, animating Bugs Bunny cartoons. When World War II erupted, the military waived the rule that disallowed pilots who wore corrective lenses to become military pilots, and Krieger joined the war effort. He went to the University of Southern California to qualify for tests that gave him ratings to teach courses in ground school. He taught refresher courses in navigation meterology, civil air regulations, aircraft aerodynamics and engines, while still doing animation for Warner Brothers Studios. He also taught celestial navigation using sextants to pilots flying bombers to England who could not use radio transmissions due to security restrictions. Krieger was moved from California to Sweetwater, Texas to teach at the RAF school, which was short - lived. It was only one course that spanned from June 1942 to September of 1942. Krieger was excited when the RAF program concluded and the WASP program began, bringing female pilots into Sweetwater. Krieger had a great respect for women, as he came from a matriarchal household. After the war, Krieger worked for an advertising company in Dallas owned by a man he had been introduced to during the war. He became vice president of the company. Eventually, Krieger opened his own advertising company and only did business with aviation companies. He met his wife, Joy, whe he was 34 and she was 21. The couple still resides in Dallas. They have two sons and several grandchildren, and love to attend WASP reunions
