Biographical / Historical:
Pan American World Airways was active in the airline industry from 1927, when it established a regular scheduled international service, to its bankruptcy in late 1991. Pan American was the first American airline to operate a permanent international air service. From its first route between Key West and Havana, Pan Am extended its routes into the rest of the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. In 1936, Pan Am inaugurated passenger service in the Pacific, and began service in the Atlantic in 1939. The post-World War II era saw the introduction of long-distance land-based airliner service on its transatlantic routes, replacing earlier pre-war flying boat service. In 1945, Pan American Airways, which had provided flying boat service into Foynes, Ireland, on the Shannon River estuary, began service into the nearby and recently constructed Shannon Airport as part of its New York to London route. Farther south, Bermuda had long been an important stopping point on transatlantic flying boat routes. In 1946, Pan Am pulled off another "first" when it inaugurated commercial service into Kindley Field, Bermuda; the airfield had been constructed by US Army engineers during the war for use by both the US Army Air Forces and the Royal Air Force and until this point had been strictly a military field. Pan Am started around-the-world commercial air service in 1947. Besides setting many "firsts" with routes, Pan Am also established "firsts" in the aircraft technology they chose, such as being the first to use Boeing 747s in regular scheduled services.

Summary:
This collection consists of two copies of "Yankee Clippers Carry On," a program produced for the christening ceremony of the Pan American World Airways Boeing Model 707-120 "Jet Clipper America" by Mamie Eisenhower at Washington National Airport, Washington, D.C., on October 16, 1958.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of two copies of "Yankee Clippers Carry On," a 9.7 x 7 inch (25 x 18 cm) booklet produced as a program for the christening ceremony of the Pan American World Airways Boeing Model 707-120 "Jet Clipper America" (r/n N707PA). The christening was performed by Mamie Eisenhower (wife of then US President Dwight D. Eisenhower) at Washington National Airport (IATA airport code DCA), Washington, D.C., on October 16, 1958. Speakers at the event included Juan T. Trippe, President of Pan American World Airways; Sinclair Weeks, US Secretary of Commerce; H. M. (Jack) Horner, Chairman of the US Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB); William M. Allen, President, Boeing Airplane Company; Elwood R. Quesada, Special Assistant to the President of the United States (Special Adviser for Aviation), and Christian A. Herter, US Under Secretary of State. The program's dramatic front cover maritime illustration—designed to look like an engraving—depicts a Pan American Boeing 707 nicknamed "Clipper America" in flight over a three-masted clipper sailing ship.

Biographical / Historical:
The Boeing Model 367-80, better known as the Dash 80, a graceful, swept-winged aircraft powered by four revolutionary new jet engines, would come to revolutionize commercial air transportation when its developed version entered service as the famous Boeing 707, America's first jet airliner. Flying 100 miles per hour faster than the de Havilland Comet and significantly larger, the new Boeing jet transport, which made its first flight on July 15, 1954, had a maximum range of more than 3,500 miles. The Boeing Aircraft Company found Pan American World Airway's president Juan T. Trippe a ready customer for their new design. Trippe had been spending much of his time searching for a suitable jet airliner to enable his pioneering company to maintain its leadership in international air travel. Impressed by the aircraft's performance, Trippe worked to convince Boeing to widen the Dash 80's fuselage design to allow seating six passengers in each seat row rather than five. On October 12, 1955, Trippe placed an order with Boeing for 20 of the new airliners (now known as the 707) but also ordered 25 of Douglas's competing DC-8, which had yet to fly but could accommodate six-abreast seating. At Pan Am's insistence, the Boeing 707 was made four inches wider than the Dash 80 so that it could carry 160 passengers six-abreast. One August 15, 1958, Boeing delivered the first of Pan Am's new 707s. Two months later, on October 16, 1958, Pan Am celebrated the advent of the jet age in the United States with a ceremony held at Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the christening by then-US President Dwight D. Eisenhower's wife Mamie Eisenhower of the Pan American World Airways Boeing Model 707-120 "Jet Clipper America" (r/n N707PA). Ten days later, on October 26, 1958, Pan Am began daily Boeing 707 international service between New York City and Paris, France.
