Description

The Barbara Southgate Parker Collection was accessioned into the International Women's Air & Space Museum in December 1991. The box of memorabilia is from the estate of Mrs. Parker and was donated by her step-niece and co-executor, Myra Bowers. Included was a note to IWASM indicating that "it was her [Mrs. Parker's] wish that these be forwarded to you."

The material in the collection is dated from 1928 to 1948. This material documents her flying experiences in the 1930s and is highlighted by her record dawn-to-dusk flight on December 8, 1934. The papers fill one Hollinger box and eight file folders. They are organized into two series:

1. Scrapbooks Albums
2. Other Papers

There are no restrictions on the use of these materials.

The New England Air Museum holds a collection of photographs from the estate of Barbara S. Parker. In this collection are over 550 prints and negatives. Most were taken locally in New England and New York.
