While attending the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. this week, ‘Ulu‘ulu Head Archivist, Janel Quirante, was able to explore “Hawaii by Air” – a new exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. And what did she happen to find? … Our footage (from the Lyman museum collection)!!
The footage, “Inter-Island Airways Plane and Sculling”, is featured along with other historic film footage, photographs, travel posters, airplane models, broadcasts from a vintage radio show in Hawai‘i and LIVE plants. “Hawaii by Air” tells the story of air travel to Hawai‘i – how it developed and its impact on Hawai‘i. It will be on view until July 2015.
