The Ancestry of Noted Aviatrix Aline Rhonie ‘Pat Brooks’ Hofheimer (1909-1963)

 

By Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D. and Esta-Ann Schapiro

 

     Figure 1.1  Aline Rhonie Hofheimer aka Aline Rhonie or Pat Brooks, 1930’s

     Aline was born on the 16th of August 1909 to Arthur and Helen (Milius) Hofheimer of York, Pennsylvania.  When she was three years old (abt 1912) her family moved to Warrenville (now called Warren), Somerset County, New Jersey.  Her home, ‘the Eaves’ was a ‘grand mansion’ which included a lovely ballroom.  Her father’s parents, Nathan and Lena, who lived in New York City, bought about 350 acres across from their property and built another mansion which had twenty-one rooms and five baths.  Today this edifice serves as the Warren Municipal Building.  Her grandparents’ estate included tennis courts, horse stables, a polo field, a six-hole golf course, two ponds, a carriage house, family mausoleum and a grotto.  The landscaping was done by the noted Olmstead Brothers (Central Park, NYC and the Duke Estate, NJ).

     Aline as a little girl was called by her first and second names (Aline Rhonie and/or AlRhonie; her mother’s family was of Southern derivation).  Later, still a child, she acquired the nickname of ‘Pat’ which carried through her married years.  However, as an adult, Aline Rhonie became her legal name and professional signature.

     She was born to a life of luxury and enjoyed outdoor activities, especially horseback riding.  She was quite the equestrian, competing in many events.  Her grandmother encouraged her to follow her artistic talents and for many years she studied with the American painter, John Sloan (1871-1951).

     She became interested in aviation after a single-engine airplane had landed on the Hofeimer Estate.  She was fascinated by the stories the airmail pilot told her.  She earned her private pilot’s license and soloed on her 21st birthday in a De Havilland Moth in 1930 in Reno, Nevada (she was there probably waiting for her divorce).  She owned three airplanes in her life: a Wasp Jr. powered Stearman, a Lambert Monocoupe of 90 hp and a Luscombe Phantom 272Y with a Warner 145.4

     Aviation was an important part of her life with many achievements:

          1930                Pilot’s license

          1931                Air Transport license

          1933                Investor in the Luscombe Airplane Co.

          1934                First woman to fly solo from NY to Mexico

          1936                British pilot’s license

          1938                Irish Commercial License (1st American to obtain this)

          1939                Women’s Voluntary Service, England; she received King George VI medal from Great Britain after the War

          1940                French Aero Club, Member

          1940                British War Relief Society, Chair of Aviation Committee

          1942-3             WAFS—4th woman accepted (she was the only woman to fly for both Nancy Love’s ‘Originals’ and Pauline Gower’s ATA)

          1943-4             ATA—Third Officer

          1949                Membership in the French national association, Croix de Guerre for her service in the French Red Cross
(she was  pilot and driver for the French Ambulance Service);
she received the Republique Francaise Medaille de la Reconnaissance Francaise5

          2010                Inducted in the Aviation Hall of Fame & Museum of New Jersey

          2011                Congressional Gold Medal

     Roosevelt Field in Garden City, New York, known as the ‘cradle of aviation’, inspired Aline to create a huge fresco mural in Hangar F, depicting the great pioneers and first conquerors of the mystery of flight: ‘Early Birds 1908-1916: The Pre-Lindbergh Era of American Aviation’. Aline, at the invitation of the famous Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera, flew to Mexico City to learn the techniques to paint the fresco. She, in turn, taught him some techniques she had learned from noted painter John Sloan (tempera). She worked on the fresco mural (106’ x 12.5’, windows excepted) from 1935-1938. It was in two parts: Early Birds 1 and 2 and was removed when the airfield was sold and the hangar was torn down. It has been preserved and is in storage with the present owners—Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Flushing, New York.

     Aline’s first marriage was to L. Richard Bamberger (23 Feb 1928); it ended in divorce in 1930.  Her second marriage was to Reginald Langhorne (Peter) Brooks 25 May 1933, which also ended in divorce in June 1937.  Peter Brooks, nephew of Lady Astor, also a pilot, was an air show performer.  For their 17,000 mile-honeymoon they travelled cross-country in their own airplanes vide supra.

     Toward the end of her life she maintained homes at Sands Point, Long Island and Palm Beach, Florida.  She died of chronic asthma and emphysema10,11 in 1963 at age 53 in Palm Beach where she had been confined in the hospital for two weeks.

      Aline Rhonie (Pat Brooks) was an interesting, courageous, adventurous, talented and unusual woman for her day; in an interview May 31, 1940 she said, ‘I hit a man once—socked him in the nose—and it bled.  He said that women weren’t good for anything but having babies.’12

      She descends from German Jewish ancestors on both sides of her family.  They were probably driven from the Iberian peninsula to Germany sometime after the 15th century.13

    Amelia Isaacs Steinfeld and SIMON Steinfeld were the parents of Harriet Steinfeld Milius and grandparents of Helen Milius. To verify please check my tree on ancestry.com – owner evroberts1

      Thanks for your comment. I get the feeling you wished that a change should be made, but I cannot find any problem to fix. Check out no. 9 in the August Milius lineage; I had even cited your tree on ancestry (ref 112). Lemmeknow if I’ve missed something.
