World Wings International / Personal Pan Am History Questionnaire
In an effort to preserve our history as stewardesses/stewards/flight attendants, and that of Pan Am, a Questionnaire was created. THERE IS NO DEADLINE FOR SENDING IN YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE.
The questionnaires are being compiled by years (1940’s, 1950’s, 1960’s, etc.) and preserved in the San Francisco Airport Museum and Library. The museum is copying each questionnaire, photo and article submitted on acid-free paper. In 1999 the San Francisco Airport Museum became the first museum in an airport to receive accreditation from the American Association of Museums. The questionnaires will also be sent to the University of Miami Richter Library Archives where Pan Am and World Wings documents, uniforms, books and other items are stored.
In 1990 and 1991 an “oral history” project was conducted. Questionnaires were used as guidelines for an interviewer to ask questions of the interviewee. Luckily, these questionnaires have been preserved and they have been added to the current questionnaires. We now have a running history of flight on Pan Am from almost the beginning of cabin crews through the demise of Pan Am.

If more space is needed, an extra sheet or two (or more) can be attached to the Questionnaire. Adding a photo to the individual’s questionnaire would be a bonus. A description of where the photo was taken, and the approximate year, would be appreciated. The name should also be on the back of the photo. It is important that any writing or printing be done clearly so it is easily read.
Questionnaires will be accepted on an on-going basis. Those received after December 15, 2012 will be saved in the World Wings Archives in the University of Miami, Richter Library Archives.
No emailed or faxed questionnaires can be accepted. Please be sure to sign your Questionnaire.
Our histories are treasures that should be preserved and shared. Future generations will have the opportunity to understand the evolution of the cabin attendant’s duties, experiences, and life from the beginning of our time with Pan Am to the end of Pan Am. I hope you’ll enjoy the memories as you complete the form.
