The Carey Article

These documents are provided on this web site as a matter of general interest and to aid in research by individuals. No permission to reproduce or transmit them is implied or granted.

One of the men aboard the USCGC Itasca was James Carey, a college student who had taken a job with the Associated Press to earn money for tuition. He was there to cover Earhart’s arrival at Howland Island, and her subsequent take-off for Hawaii.

One of the pieces he wrote was for the newspaper of the University of Hawaii, the Ka Elele. We reproduce here scans of the original copy; a scan of the article as published; and a transcript of the copy. Also reproduced here are some rough notes for a “flash” – a pre-written announcement of Earhart’s arrival at Howland.
