DOUGLAS "WRONG WAY" CORRIGAN
Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan signs a matchbook.
Matchbook signed: "Doug 'Wrong Way' Corrigan", outer side of a white match book cover unfolded to 4½x1½. 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. Fold in match book cover touches "W" in "Way". Ink note on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
