Carol Mangold loaning pilot Tex Rankin her black cat for air race

Photograph, taken August 24, 1928, of a Portland girl, Carol Mangold, handing pilot Tex Rankin her pet cat to take with him on a national air race from New York to Los Angeles. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 2 of the Oregon Journal on August 24, 1928, under the headline “Tex is a Modern Ajax.” The photograph had the following caption: “Tex Rankin, about to set sail for the East to enter the national air races, decides to put an end for all time to hoodoos. Not content with entering his bus under the number 13, he takes along a black cat, borrowed for the occasion from little Carol Mangold, No. 1429 Mississippi avenue. The cat’s name is Alba Barba, which is Latin for something-er-another. But anyway, ‘Alba’ doesn’t mean black, even if the cat is. Ajax, of Greek mythology, who defied the lightning, has nothing on the Portland flier.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Rankin and His Jinxes Go East to Start Derby.” See related image Nos. 371N2073, 371N5920, 371N6220, and 371N6222.

Tex Rankin returning black cat to Carol Mangold after air race

Photograph, taken on September 22, 1928, of pilot Tex Rankin standing in the back seat of his plane, holding a black cat named Alba Barba. Next to the plane, reaching up to pet the cat, is Carol Mangold of Portland, the cat’s owner. The photograph was taken upon Rankin’s return to Portland after a national air race from New York to Los Angeles. Mangold had loaned Alba Barba to Rankin to take with him.

On September 23, 1928, the Oregon Journal published a Page 3 story about the return of Rankin and the cat. The story was headlined “Rankin and Jinx Cat Back Home; Everybody Glad.” The story reported that Rankin had placed fifth. See related image Nos. 371N5922, 371N5923, 371N6141, 371N6150, and 377N0032.
