Scope and content

Photograph of pilot John H. Miller posing next to an airplane and holding a trophy that depicts a woman riding an eagle and holding a small plane in one upraised hand. The photograph was taken at Pearson Field in Vancouver, Washington, on Monday, September 26, 1927, after Miller arrived in an all-metal Hamilton monoplane, probably the plane in the photograph. A cropped version of this photograph was one of seven images published on Page 1 of the Oregon Journal on Tuesday, September 27, 1927. The photographs, published under the headline “To Cut Air Capers at Portland’s Big Show,” were part of coverage of an air show in Portland. This photograph had the following caption: “Miller is holding Detroit News Air Transport trophy won at Spokane meet.” According to an accompanying article, the trophy had been awarded to the Hamilton airplane “for efficiency in the weight to horsepower tests” at an air show in Spokane the previous week.

Image note: The name “John H Miller” is written on the negative and is visible on the right side of the image.
