Matthew B. Sellers, builder of the first Kentucky-manufactured aircraft, flew his first quadruplane from 1908 to 1913 powered by various 2-cylinder, horizontally-opposed engines. This Kemp G-2 was one of these engines.
It was suitable only for small single-seat airplanes such as Santos-Dumont's Demoiselle and a scaled-down verion of Bleriot's Model XI.
Gift of Matthew Bacon Sellers, Jr. and John Sellers.
