Air Mail Postcard and Newspaper Article

Extent:
0.05 Cubic feet (1 folder)
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Photographic postcards
Newspaper clippings
Date:
1911
Summary:
To demonstrate the potential of transporting mail by air, the United States Post Office authorized a series of special air mail flights as part of the festivities at an international air meet held from September 23 to October 1, 1911 on Long Island, New York. This collection consists of a postcard sent on one of these air mail flights as well as a news clipping about the card's delivery.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of a postcard addressed to Miss [Elinore Engledrum] in South Bend, Indiana that was sent by her second cousin Frank via one of the special air mail flights that originated from Long Island, New York. The card is postmarked September 28, 1911 and was carried a few miles by airplane before being delivered the rest of the way by train. The front of the postcard features a view of Thomas Sopwith seated at the controls of a biplane. The collection also contains a news clipping that relates the story of the postcard's delivery but contains several inaccuracies including stating that the card was sent on the first authorized air mail flight (which actually took place on September 23, 1911), incorrectly stating that the postcard has a picture of Earle Ovington, and misquoting the inscription on the card. The article also refers to the recipient's name as "Elinore Engledrum" but the postcard itself appears to be addressed to "Elanore Engeldrum."
Arrangement:
Collection is arranged by type of material.
Biographical / Historical:
To demonstrate the potential of transporting mail by air, the United States Post Office authorized a series of special air mail flights as part of the festivities at an international air meet held from September 23 to October 1, 1911 on Long Island, New York. Earle L. "Ovie" Ovington was sworn in as America's "first aeroplane mail carrier" and took off from Long Island in his Queen Blériot-Type Dragon-Fly with a full mail bag on September 23, 1911. Ovington flew to Mineola, a few miles away, where he banked his airplane and pushed the bag overboard. It fell to the ground and was retrieved by the local postmaster, William McCarthy. During the course of the event, eight pilots were sworn in as "aeroplane mail carriers," and daily flights were made from Garden City to Mineola.

Biographical / Historical:
For over sixty-five years, professional photographer Duncan Preston Schiedt combined his love of jazz with his love of photography. Born in 1921 in Atlantic City, New Jersey to Jacob and Kitty Schiedt, he later moved with his family to New York City. In the mid-1930s, he discovered the two loves of his life. Ironically, he first heard jazz or "swing music" as it was then known in a radio broadcast while attending a boys' school in England in 1936. Back in the States by 1938, he was enthralled when a friend showed him his basement darkroom and taught him how to develop film. He soon bought his own camera and began taking pictures in the Times Square movie palaces, nightclubs, and big band shows of New York. In World War II, he served as a cameraman in the Army Air Force, where he recorded atomic bomb tests in the western Pacific area, including Bikini Atoll.

In 1950, Schiedt married Betty Benjamin and moved to Hollywood where he worked at the Atomic Energy Commission's film laboratory for eight months. After returning to civilian life, he worked as a photographer in advertising in New York before moving in 1951 to Pittsboro, Indiana, where his parents had relocated. He had two children, Cameron and Leslie.

Thereafter, his interests in jazz and photography merged and became more than a hobby, as he transformed himself into one of the country's leading jazz historians and photographers. He traveled the country to photograph performers in movie houses, night clubs, big-band shows, jazz festivals, and other venues. Schiedt always shot in black and white, since to him that was the essence of jazz. As he wrote in the introduction to his book, Jazz in Black and White: The Photographs of Duncan Schiedt, "Jazz is a black and white music. Its range, from blinding brilliance to deepest shadings, seems to demand the drama that black and white can so easily provide. Consequently, when I take a photograph of a jazz subject, I see it in those terms."

He processed all his own film in his own darkroom so that any picture bearing his name was totally his own work. His photographs have been exhibited in numerous galleries, including the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum, the Chicago Public Library, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Pensacola Art Museum. While shooting, Schiedt also interviewed his subjects, and those interviews added to his ever-growing scholarship in the field. He was the author of three books, The Jazz State of Indiana, Twelve Lives in Jazz,and Jazz in Black and White: The Photographs of Duncan Schiedt, and co-author of Ain't Misbehavin': The Story of Fats Waller. His photographs and articles have been published in the leading jazz periodicals and magazines. Over the years, he also amassed a first-rate collection of historical photographs of jazz musicians. Both his historical photographs and his original work were featured extensively in Ken Burns' Public Broadcasting Station series "Jazz." Duncan Schiedt died on March 12, 2014.
