This item is a laminated and annotated strip map on cloth, nine inches wide and approximately thirty-two feet long, detailing the route taken by George and Parrish from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, New York to San Francisco, California.
Biographical / Historical:
In 1919 General William "Billy" Mitchell organized the first mass transcontinental air race, dubbed by the Air Service the "Transcontinental Reliability and Endurance Test." The race was originally proposed as a one way race from New York to California but this plan was changed to require a round trip, with flyers taking off from both Roosevelt Field and San Francisco, most in de Havilland DH-4s. The second plane to arrive on the west coast from New York was piloted by Harold H. George, who was accompanied by mechanic Lee M. Parrish.
