  • He was born on October 7, 1884 in East Orange, New Jersey to Frederick C. Geiger and Josephine Dodd Squier. He attended East Orange High School. Geiger was a cadet at the United States Military Academy June 16, 1904 to February 14, 1908, when he was graduated as an Army second lieutenant in the Coast Artillery Corps. He was promoted to first lieutenant November 8, 1908. As a lieutenant, Geiger commanded the aviation assets of the United States Army Signal Corps in the Hawaiian Islands. The first Army airplanes, pilots and crews arrived in Oahu in July 1913. The planes were based at Fort Kamehameha, near present-day Hickam Air Force Base. Lieutenant Geiger arrived in Oahu with two Curtiss Aeroplane Company seaplanes, a mechanic, 12 enlisted men, and other equipment. However, Geiger’s aircraft were in poor shape. His flights were limited to short flights in Pearl Harbor and a longer flight to Diamond Head, Hawaii and back to Fort Kamehameha. Geiger was ordered to cease all flying operations in late 1913 because the trade winds were too strong. The airplanes were sold locally, and the engines were sent back to the North Island Flying School. The Hawaiian Islands would not see any more Army aviation activity until 1917. (en)
