Williams Co, Beryl J
 
Venice & Pasadena CA.
USA
 
During 1911-1914, several single and two place open cockpit biplanes were built apparently following the Curtiss design as exhibition ships. Later models with fabric-covered fuselage and rounded wingtips made them quite modern for their day.
The 1911 original had a 60hp Hall-Scott motor and later versions 80hp Curtiss power.
 
Williams soloed his own creation at Hyde Park Aviation Field (Pasadena CA) on 26 August 1911 at age 19 as the world's youngest licensed pilot, according to Aero Club of America officials.
