The Carey Photos

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.

While aboard he kept a hand written journal, with both notes for his articles and more general impressions and observations. He also had a camera and took photographs. While many of the pictures are of poor quality, the ones here (restored, but not altered) do give an excellent impression of the time he spent aboard Itasca.
