Some of the greatest resources for a documentary film do not come from
established archives or libraries, but from the people who lived the
history. If you can share any of the things listed below, our story
will be so much richer and our mission to preserve the memory of Pan
Am for the next generation will succeed.
We are seeking help from former Pan Am employees, passengers, and enthusiasts
in the following areas:
Do you have photos from Pan Am, either airplanes, facilities, or individuals
associated with the company? The Producers can pay for shipping of photos
to our headquarters in Houston where they will be scanned and promptly
returned. If you have concerns about mailing valuable items, confer
with us. We may be able to scan your collection at your location if
our researchers or film crews plan to be in your city.
Films or Videos
Do you have any original 16mm or 8mm footage or good quality video transfers
of film about Pan Am. This could be either official company footage
or home movies made by employees or travelers. Home movies are especially
valuable as they capture unique perspectives of the company's operation
or what it was like to travel on Pan Am.
Do you have Pan Am advertisements, schedules, or other Pan Am related
printed items. As with the photos described above, we can pay for shipping
of these materials to our headquarters in Houston where they will be
scanned and promptly returned.
Do you have copies of music or radio programs that had to do with Pan
Am. Talk to us about sharing these items with us. We will make a dub
of the audio program and return your original promptly.
Do you have, or know of someone who has, unique memories or stories
about Pan Am. We may want to interview you on camera or record an audio
oral history. Also, we may want to put you story on the Web site in
the Adventure Stories section.
Leads on the Remains of Pan Am
The producers will be shooting at many of the original air terminals
for Pan Am. Are there Pan Am facilities or artifacts that still exist
that we may want to know about?
If you can help us in any of the above categories, please contact us
as soon as possible at 713-661-6677 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
