Scope and content

Photograph of a crowd watching as two men refuel Captain Frank M. Hawks’ plane at Swan Island airport in Portland on Saturday, January 23, 1932. Hawks made two brief fuel stops in Portland that day while flying from Agua Caliente, Mexico, to Vancouver, British Columbia, and back in a successful attempt to set a speed record. On Sunday, January 24, 1932, the Oregon Journal published a story about Hawks’ flight on Page 1, under the headline “Hawks Sets Record for 2-Way Dash.” According to the story, Hawks set a new round-trip speed record of 13 hours, 43 minutes, 59 seconds.
