Former owner of Sanders Aircraft, before the Exodus

As a citizen of the Exodus, he lives on a piece of land with "green acres of pastures stretching to a distant farmhouse. There were herds of sheep, some horses, the fenced squares of pigpens under the sprawling shapes of wooden barns and, farther away, a metal hangar of a type that did not belong on a farm." The 'metal hanger' is actually a hangar.

He had designed the airplane in which Dagny had come to be at the Exodus Site, one that Sanders looks at as "that excellent monoplane, my best model".
