Carteret County inventor Luther Paul was born in the coastal fishing hamlet of Davis Shore in 1869. Early in life he became interested in how machines work and maintained that interest throughout his life. His interest in aviation began in the early 1900s when he read of a New York Times' offer of a reward for the first manned, powered flight. Paul describes his grandfather's design and construction of an experimental helicopter.
