WHO WAS WARREN GRIMES
Warren was born in Montgomery County close to where the Wright brothers lived and worked. As a child he would ride his bicycle down to Huffman Prairie to watch the Wrights test their airplanes. Warren began his career in Aviation designing lights for the Ford TriMotor. Until the 1920s, airplanes and airports were not equipped with lighting. Pilots relied on bonfires or firepots to guide them or land them.
Warren quickly realized that he could make more money working for himself and started his own company developing lighting, and the rest is history!
