ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE --r Saturday, November 10, 1973 .5 O Obituaries r Pwn OTTO P. KOHL Curfiss Museum Founder BATH - Otto P. Kohl, found-er of the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum of local history in Ham-mondsport and a Town of Ur-bana councilman, died late Thursday at Davenport Hospital after a lengthy illness. He was 80. A native of Rochester, he joined Curtiss and his associates in Hammondsport in 1914 as a tool maker in Curtiss' aircraft production plant. " He later was promoted to production specialist and traveled to Curtiss plants during the World War I era to supervise intricate production efforts. After the war he joined Mercury Aircraft Co. in Hammondsport. He was plant superintendent when he retired with 33 years' service in 1958. He then began efforts to establish a museum in honor of Curtiss, a Hammondsport native, who conducted many of his historical aeronautical experiments in and around the village. The museum was officially opened in the summer of 1962 arid soon became known glob ally. Many aviation notables visited it and some donated artifacts. ' - The Ox-5 Club of America, an aviation historical organization taking its name from an early Curtiss ; engine; established its aviation hall of fame in the museum. Mr. Kohl and the museum was host for the annual Ox-5 Club's Curtis Day Celebration in early summer over the past ten years. Mr. Kohl did most of the physical renovation of the-museum building, an unused school which Curtiss attended as;a boy. It was not unusual for Mr. Kohl to work there 12 hours a day in its early years. It 'was only recently he gave up his post as museum- curator, continuing as president. He traveled to many states and Canada to collect donations to the museum. He refurbished some in the museum and others in the workshop garage next to his home atop Bully Hill. He also conducted visitors on tours of the three-story museum and discontinued it only several months ago. The Ox-5 Club of America in 1966 named him its Mr. Ox-5 Man of the Year. Many aviation publications carried feature stories on his starting the museum and his own life. He was a member of the United Methodist church of Hammondsport and a 50-year member of the Pleasant Valley Grange. He also was a member of the Pulteney In-ternationl Order of Odd Fellows. ' Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Eleanor Brush Kohl; a son, Carl of Hammondsport, a daughter, Mrs. Susie Andrews of Auburn; three brothers, Arthur, Ralph and Oscar of Rochester, and four grandchildren.
