Howard Hughes and Crew Signatures 1938 round-the-world crew

02 Feb

Fountain pen signatures of Howard Hughes, radio operator Dick Stoddart, flight engineer Edward Lund, navigator Tommy Thurlow, and co-pilot Harry Connor on the reverse of an off-white 3.5 x 2.75 place card from a dinner held to honor Hughes at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Also includes an original snapshot of them in front of a plane, a program for the dinner, a telegram invitation to the dinner, and two additional place cards. In fine condition, with toned tape remnants to the top edge, slight feathering to a couple letters of Stoddart’s signature, and fading and brushing to the embossed gold World’s Fair logo on the front of the card. Also accompanied by a modern photo. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
