Clema Granger landed and signed the Registers of three of the Delta Mike Airfield, Inc. suite. She signed the Davis-Monthan Register twice, the Parks Field Register once, and the Clover Field Register once. She signed the latter Friday, May 9, 1930. She carried one unidentified passenger in an unidentified Swallow aircraft.

She married fellow Register pilot James E. Granger on April 29, 1911 in Los Angeles, CA. Jim Granger was her flight instructor. They had a son, Norman, who contributed information for Clema's biography page at the Davis-Monthan Airfield Register Web site at the link. As a family, they were part of the story of west coast aviation during the Golden Age.

At their biography links is an essay on "The Golden Age of Local Air Racing", which focuses on that subject near and around Santa Monica's Clover Field during the time Jim and Clema were in residence there. Please download the essay at their links.
