Paul H. Wilkinson, (1895-1975), aviation writer and publisher, is perhaps best known as the writer and publisher of 'Aircraft Engines of the World'. This series served as a standard reference tool to specifications for aircraft engines produced throughout the world beginning in 1941. The 34th edition was in preparation at the time of Wilkinson's death. He also published three other books pertaining to diesel aviation engines prior to beginning this series, as well as numerous articles for aeronautical publications.
