Flying through Arizona: The Story of the First National Women’s Air Race with Natalie Stewart-Smith

January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

FREE

In 1929, the first national women’s air race from Santa Monica, CA to Cleveland, OH passed through Arizona. Stopping in Yuma, Phoenix, and Douglas, the intrepid fliers solidified their determination and sisterhood along these Arizona waypoints. Who were these aviators? What were their planes like in 1929? What challenges did they encounter along the way? And what about that telegram sent to pilot Thea Rasche, “Beware of sabotage”? There is much to explore!

This program is cohosted by The Museum of Casa Grande. This is an in-person event.*

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

A native of the Adirondacks of New York, Natalie Stewart-Smith’s careers included military service and education, from the elementary to college levels. Her research most often addressed women in the military, and as military aviators.

*the audience will be in-person and the speaker will be presenting virtually.
