Anthony Rudolph Silverston was an aero inventor in Milwaukee.

Silverston ran the Milwaukee School and College of Aviation, an institution which was pilloried in Aerial Age Weekly.[1]

(Later he had some involvement with Marcus Garvey's Black Star shipping line.)[2]

On espacenet his middle name is spelled "Ridolph". Wrong, I'm pretty sure, but derives from the spelling on Patent FR-1909-394877. He could have used a different spelling, or the French office could have made a mistake. However, we can see that on Patent GB-1908-20433, which has the same illustrations as the French patent, his name is printed "Rudolph".
