Default George ? Aldrich

Can someone clear up a question I have?-George Aldrich the great model aviation man. What was his middle name? I`ve seen an engine on auction inscribed "George M Aldrich custom" ,I have some Aldrich custom props signed "George N Aldrich" and now I`ve seen on his history it`s George Y Aldrich.Seems there is some sneaky business going on out there--

And to add to the confusion the Index to AMA Hall of Fame members gives M as the middle initial while the biography lists it as Y! I have sent an email for clarification to the AMA staff and if I get a response I will post it here.

OK, here is the official word from AMA:

"...His middle initial is "M". Unfortunately, a typo in his biography states it is "Y," and that is incorrect. I will send this to our website personnel who will update his biography."
