Former Aviators And Crew Members Of The China National Aviation Corporation Visit Hoover Archives

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

On September 15th, Hoover Library & Archives welcomed a group of former pilots and crew members who once flew with the China National Aviation Corporation (CNAC), many of whom have donated archival materials that enhance the significant holdings on modern China at Hoover Archives. CNAC was the most significant airline operating in China during the 1930s, and during World War II CNAC pilots became known for flying the route across the Himalayas known as “The Hump”—at the time, perhaps the most dangerous path of aerial travel in the world. During their visit, the former CNAC employees and their family members viewed rare archival materials from Hoover’s collections, spoke with curators and conservators about preservation and access to materials, and enjoyed a talk entitled “China’s Wings: A Conversation with Legendary Chinese National Aviation Corporation Pilots and Crew Members.”
