Eddie August Schneider as the subject of an article written by the Associated Press and published in the New York Times on August 24, 1930.

Schneider Reaches Ohio. He Lands at Columbus From Wichita on Junior Record Attempt. Columbus, Ohio; August 23, 1930 (Associated Press) Eddie Schneider, 18-year-old Jersey City aviator, who is attempting to establish a new West-to-East transcontinental air record, put his plane down at Port Columbus here this afternoon at 3:55 P.M. Eastern Standard Time. He hopped off from Wichita, Kansas, at 6:50 a.m., Central Standard Time, this morning. Schneider required 7 hours and 45 minutes for the trip from Wichita to Port Columbus, a distance of about 800 miles. His total elapsed time to this city is 21 hours 35 minutes. He is attempting to shatter the junior record of 28 hours 55 minutes from Pacific to the Atlantic, made by the late Frank Goldsborough. The young flier established a new junior east-to-west transcontinental mark last week.
