Middletown, Conn., July 6.–Russell Boardman, who flew the Atlantic Ocean and became one of the country’s famous aviators, today was buried in the cemetery at Westfield, the village where he was born.
His widow and his brother, Earl Boardman, who flew the body to Hartford from Indianapolis Sunday, stood at the grave. Boardman was injured fatally Saturday when his little racing plane crashed in the cross-country dash for the Bendix trophy.
