Katie O’Toole, past president of Centre County Historical Society, has released 9 podcasts in a series titled Dead Centre about little known aspects of Centre County—its history, places, and people that give this County its unique sense of place.

The latest: Centre County’s First in Flight takes you into the world of early airmail pilots who flew blindly across the Allegheny Mountains, stopping in Bellefonte, PA, on the first leg of the transcontinental airmail route, and hear from Bob Hines whose Uncle Dan wrote an early history of the airmail pioneers.
