Grace Corporation Pilot Wing

Colombia, Maryland

The business that would become W. R. Grace and Company was founded in 1854 in Peru by William Russell Grace. W. R. Grace and Company is a United States based chemical conglomerate. At one time, Grace's main business interest was in shipping. To get its products from Peru to North America and Europe, William Grace founded a shipping division. In 1929, W.R. Grace and Company and Pan American Airways formed Panagra Airlines. This wing has nothing to do with Panagra. Panagra merged with Braniff International Airways and took the Braniff name in May 1967.
