Has TIGHAR spoken with Cliff Howard?
« on: June 21, 2015, 07:48:42 PM »

In searching the web for info on AE  I found this:

http://asopa.typepad.com/asopa_people/history/page/4/

I sure hope I did the link correctly!

If you scroll down a bit you will see a piece by Cliff Howard, who says his father, Frank, appears in this picture with AE and FN. In my clumsy way I searched all the places on the forum and in the Amelipedia and didn't see any reference to the Howards. If this is old news for the site I apologize; I'm still learning!
I'm no expert; just happy to be here.👀

A Lae Gallery has two pictures (#13 & #14) with an unidentified tall man who appears to me to be Frank Howard. As already stated, Mr. Howard is in the picture at AE in Lae plus the two I just mentioned. My hope is his son, Cliff, may have additional photos of NR16020. However, none of the pics I have seen were taken by Frank Howard.
He is not mentioned by name; but persons described in the Chater Report as "... the Vacuum Oil Co.’s representatives filled all tanks ..." would include Frank Howard.

Daniel: Thanks for the links. I've never looked at those before and found them interesting. Good eye, finding Mr. Howard in those shots! Since he's not mentioned by name (that I saw), fingers crossed that this might be a new lead to explore....

Googled 'Frank Howard Amelia Earhart' and found mentions in the Longs' Amelia Earhart: The Mystery Solved and Cooke's Working in Papua New-Guinea, 1931-1946. So maybe this isn't as new as I'd hoped.  :-\
