Larry Milberry

1943 30 October -

Larry Milberry is the founder CANAV Books, Canada's oldest independent aviation book publisher. He was born in 1943 in Haleybury Ontario, the youngest of four children of Basil Milberry, a miner, and Julia (née Brown).

A fan of aviation from boyhood, Milberry parlayed his love of flying machines into a livelihood, leaving a teaching career in 1980 to found his own publishing company. Since then, Milberry has been producing original quality works of aviation history authored by himself and other Canadian aviation experts. Running his modest operation from his Beach home in Toronto, Milberry is often scouted out and about - at Canada Post offloading his latest mailout, at "The Goof" enjoying a cup of coffee or in one of the area's many parks with his grandkids. To date, CANAV has published 29 books and is one of the "most successful and influential publishers of Canadian aviation history," according to the Canadian Aviation Historical Society. Writes Aviation News, "Milberry is well known to aviation enthusiasts in Canada and to devotees of Canadian aeronautical history overseas. His books have become collectors' items and his work is solid."

Milberry is an Honorary Fellow of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute; in 2004 he was inducted into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame.
