Date: November 11, 1919
This patent drawing and description depicts and describes Frank Dove's Aeroplance Stabilizing Mechanism. Dove, a resident of Topeka, Kansas, who worked with Albin Longren, applied for the patent on February 6, 1918, and the patent itself was issued on November 11, 1919.

Date: April 10, 1922-June 16, 1925
The patent, #1,541,976, depicts and describes Albin Longren's method of Fuselage construction circa 1922. Longren's goal was to construct an airplane body that was not only lightweight, but also durable in order to withstand the stresses related to powered flight. As illustrated in the drawing and described in the text of the patent, Longren's method of constructing a sturdier fuselage relies upon the use of ribbing along the entire length of the fuselage to provide increased rigidity and durability.
