The Postal History Foundation is inviting the public to visit it’s latest exhibition featuring one-of-a-kind historical artifacts!
The renowned foundation is presenting Love for Arizona Airmail, an exhibition that highlights the daredevil pilots who flew over Arizona skies in the early days, determined to deliver mail and packages to citizens.
Model planes, historic postcards and envelopes, photographs and newspaper articles are just some of the unique materials found in this exhibit that serves as an eye-opening view of airmail during the early days.
The exhibition includes documentation of Charles Lindbergh’s dedication of the Tucson Municipal Airport in 1927, Cal Rodger’s stop in Arizona during the first trans-continental flight, Katherine Stinson’s aerial acrobatics and first official airmail delivery, the devastating crash of a Lockheed in Gila Bend, and the drop mail of a dirigible on its journey from Texas to California.
The exhibition will be on display in the Slusser Library at the Postal History Foundation through March 31. The exhibit is open Monday-Friday from 9 am to 3 pm and there is no admission charge.
