Scope and Contents
This collection consists of eight black and white photographs taken in Hawaii in the late 1930s. The photographs range in size from approximately 2.5 by 3.5 inches up to approximately 5 by 7 inches. Some may have been taken by Walton Alexander Anderson, others appear to be press or promotional photography. Four photographs relate to Amelia Mary Earhart's first unsuccessful round-the-world flight attempt in March 1937. Two photos show Earhart, Paul Mantz, and Fred Noonan wearing leis and speaking to the press. Two photographs show Earhart's Lockheed Model 10-E Electra (NR16020) undergoing repairs at Luke Field on Ford Island, Oahu, Hawaii. The collection also contains four photographs relating to Pan American Airways (Pan Am) aircraft in Hawaii, at least some of which were also possibly taken on Ford Island. Aircraft shown in these photographs include the Sikorsky S-42 Clipper (NR-823M), Martin (Glenn L.) Model 130 Philippine Clipper (NC-14715), and Martin (Glenn L.) Model 130 China Clipper (NC-14716).
