 In 1942, as the United States found itself embroiled in a world war, it faced a severe shortage of pilots. In response, two groups of women’s pilots formed, creating civilian groups to ferry planes overseas and free up male pilots for combat missions. These groups merged in 1943 and became the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs). More than 1,000 pilots, all volunteers, ultimately trained as WASPs and flew almost every type of military aircraft. Catherine Parker kept various charts, instructions, and certificates from her time as a WASP, including her individual flight records.

Join Felicia Williamson, Director of Library and Archives, to learn more about WASPs through selected artifacts from the Catherine Parker Chatham Family Collection in the Museum’s archives.
