Today in History: First Flight around the World in 1924

Today in History: First Flight around the World in 1924

94 years ago today, the first flight around the world was completed by the Americans Lowell H. Smith and Erik H. Nelson: after 176 days (starting on April 6) they had covered some 25,180 miles (42,398 km) in 57 stages and landed where they initially took off, in Seattle, Washington. Before the two Americans, five other nations had attempted the circumnavigation of the globe but none of them completed their journeys. Originally, 4 American airplanes departed Seattle but only two of them completed the entire trip. In preparation for flight, The U.S. Navy helped deliver spare engines and thousands of gallons of fuel to various places around the world. The crews arrived back in the United States in early September and then made several stops in larger cities before returning to Seattle.

Today in History: Lufthansa was (re)formed in 1954 

Today in History: Lufthansa was (re)formed in 1954 

Lufthansa originally formed back in 1926 as Deutsche Luft Hansa A.G. (the name Deutsche Lufthansa was used as of 1933). But with the defeat of Germany in World War II, the country lost sovereignty over its airspace and Lufthansa had to cease all operations. A new national airline was founded under the name of Luftag in 1953. Luftag acquired the name and logo of Deutsche Lufthansa on August 6, 1954 and was granted approval to launch domestic flights in April of 1955. International operations began in May of 1955 and thus the tradition of the German flag carrier continued.

Presidents Day is a federal holiday which, in the United States, is observed on the third Monday in February.

Today in History: Edward McKnight Kauffer born in 1890

127 years ago today, Edward McKnight Kauffer, one of Britain’s most influential poster artists and graphic designers between the wars, was born in Great Falls, Montana. Kauffer began his professional life as a painter in San Francisco and Chicago before studying in Paris (1913) and moving to London at the outbreak of World War I. Kauffer received his first poster commission for London Underground in 1915 and immediately embraced poster art as a form of visual communication. He designed 141 posters for the Underground and many more for clients like Shell or British Petroleum. His poster works brought the language of modern art to a large public. In 1937, the New York Museum of Modern Art held a one-man show of his work. Kauffer returned to the United States in 1940 where he produced posters for the Greek War Relief and the U.S. Treasury. After the war, he produced a series of posters for American Airlines and the New York Subway. Kauffer passed away in 1954 in New York.
