Summary
Scrapbook, 1925-1927, of Alfred Mongim of New York, New York, consisting of clippings concerning the development of air travel, air mail delivery, and an airport in Richmond, Virginia. This movement was spearheaded by A. A. Anderson of New York and Henry W. Woodhouse. Clippings relate efforts of private interests, civic councils including that of Richmond, and the military. They also detail the aviation exploits of Captain Roscoe Turner who often flew to and from Richmond, served as manager of the developing airfield, and operated a flying school. Clippings also include aviation news from Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina, which affected Richmond efforts. Clippings also mention the explorer Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957), Governor Harry Byrd (1887-1966), Richmond mayor J. Fulmer Bright (1877-1953), Mason Manghum, and the entertainer Will Rogers (1879-1935). There is also a thirteen page chronology concerning the development of the airport in Richmond which became the Richard E. Byrd Flying Field. Clippings also detail the opening of the Thomas J. Downing (1868-1927) Bridge from the Northern Neck of Virginia to Tappahannock, Virginia
