This is your last chance to help us figure out the names of the mysterious modelers who attended the Annual Miniature Airplane Contest, held in Kansas City, MO on October 2, 1938, as described in the “History Preserved” column of the April 2014 issue of Model Aviation.

A panoramic photograph showing the participants of the Annual Miniature Airplane Contest, held October 2, 1938 in Kansas City, Missouri. A plastic layer over the photograph details some of the names of the participants.

This is the far-right section of the photograph (previous sections of the photo can be found here, here and here). Can you identify these modelers? If so, please write to the Museum’s Archivist, Jackie, at jackies@modelaircraft.org. Thank you in advance for your help! We will post at a later date if we learn any names of the unknown modelers.
