Today is Presidents Day

Presidents Day is a federal holiday which, in the United States, is observed on the third Monday in February. This day is set aside, by more and more of America’s population, to honor all of the past United States Presidents that have served our country. Two of our nation’s greatest Presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, are brought to mind as we celebrate this day. Their birth dates, which fall close to this same time, have been celebrated for decades with public ceremonies in Washington, D.C. and throughout the United States.

Today is Pan American Aviation Day

Today is Pan American Aviation Day

Pan American Aviation Day is observed annually on December 17 in the United States and falls on the same day as Brothers Wright Day, which is not surprising as both observances commemorate the same event.
On December 17, 1903 Orville and Wilbur Wright accomplished the first successful flight of a mechanically propelled heavier-than-air craft near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. This event is considered to be a pivotal milestone in the development of aeronautics which led to breakthrough developments. Pan American Aviation Day was declared by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was first observed in 1940 and has been proclaimed every year since then. This observance focuses on stimulating interest in aviation in the American countries. Its ultimate goal is to contribute to the development of more rapid communications and cultural ties between the countries in the Western hemisphere. Pan American Aviation Day is not a public holiday therefore government offices, educational establishments, and businesses do not close on this day. However, schools often organize trips to aviation centers or museums and classroom activities devoted to the history of aviation. Source: anydayguide.com.

Today in History: Edward McKnight Kauffer born in 1890

128 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.

Today in History: BOAC formed in 1939

Today in History: BOAC formed in 1939

British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) was the British state-owned airline created in 1940 by the merger of Imperial Airways and British Airways Ltd. It continued operating overseas services throughout World War II. After the passing of the Civil Aviation Act of 1946, European and South American services passed to two further state-owned airlines, British European Airways (BEA) and British South American Airways (BSAA). BOAC absorbed BSAA in 1949, but BEA continued to operate British domestic and European routes for the next quarter century. A 1971 Act of Parliament merged BOAC and BEA with effect from 31 March 1974, forming today’s British Airways.[1]
