The Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History will be opening their latest exhibit in the galleries this weekend.  Telling the story of Jackson resident Bill Maher, this exhibit will feature his career during WWII with the China National Aviation Corporation. The CNAC pioneered the Hump Route over the Himalayan mountains in order to supply the AVG Flying Tigers, the 14th Air Force and the Chinese Army, a feat thought to be impossible. Flying the Hump was one of the greatest achievements of WWII.  The William Maher Campus of Jackson College is named in his honor.
