a generous donation from the Marjorie Evans Foundation, Io Communications
was able to spend a week at the Pan Am historical archives located at
the Richter Library on the campus of the University of Miami.
The research team made up of Jeffrey Mills, Barbara Mills, Kerry Maniam,
and Raymond Gayle each had a computer and scanner that they used to
digitize photos in the collection that chronicle the history of Pan
Am from its inception in 1927 to its last days in 1991.
team was able to collect over 750 images, which now brings the Pan Am
Documentary Project collection to over 1000. These pictures will be
used in both the feature documentary film and the educational DVD-ROM.
Visit the Photo Gallery soon to see samples of our scanning added to
this online collection.
Many thanks to Marjorie Evans for making this important research trip
possible, to Raymond Gayle for volunteering to help us in this quest,
and for Craig Likness and staff at the Richter for their help during
our stay at the library archives.
