On Feb. 27, 1941, the Morrison Field municipal airport in West Palm Beach became an Army post. A dozen issues of the “weekly illustrated magazine of Morrison Field Air Base” recently landed in our hands when retired teacher Ed Sheedy of Lantana lent them to Eliot Kleinberg for Eliot’s Post Time column. Ed, whose father was a Navy pilot, bought them from a local man who’d collected them.
The magazines from the last four months of 1941 are a wonderful snapshot of a long-ago time. We’ve scanned them so you can read every page online here.
