DOUGLAS "WRONG WAY" CORRIGAN - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 12/07/1957 - DOCUMENT 253360

 
DOUGLAS "WRONG WAY" CORRIGAN
Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan sends an autograph letter of thanks for the newspaper clipping.
Autograph Letter Signed: "Douglas Corrigan/'Wrong Way'", 1p, cut to 8x5. No place, "12-7-57". To "Dear Mc Cullough". In full: "I certainly thank you for the page clipping from the Sunday News that you sent me - the pictures were taken last Sept. and I was wondering if they used them or not. Glad to know youre [sic] still able to get around even tho you had a 'wrong way' time of it in World War I. I was selling papers on the streets of San Antonio Texas in 1917-18 and remember some of the news yet." After having been refused a license to fly to Ireland in 1937, on July 17, 1938, aviator Corrigan (1907-1995) left Floyd Bennett Airfield in New York City for California. 28 hours and 13 minutes later, he landed outside Dublin, Ireland, after "accidentally" going the wrong way. Corrigan's exploit made him a national hero, and he was known as "Wrong-Way" Corrigan. Horizontal fold crosses between the "r"s in "Corrigan". Irregular top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
