Title

Fullard-Leo Visit to the CAA Colony

Description

For several years, starting in 1948, a small colony of Americans lived on Palmyra under the employ of the CAA (forerunner of the FAA). These photos show a visit to the colony by the atoll's owners, the Fullard-Leo family.

They had just recently won back control of Palmyra from the Navy, and were likely visiting the colonists (who would still have rights to live there until 1948), and reviewing conditions on the island.

This is part of our CAA Colony collection.
