Ransom Center Travel Material Featured at ABIA

"Your Papers, Please: Passports and Other Travel Documents from The Ransom Center," a mini-exhibition featuring passports, photos and travel documents of cultural icons, will be displayed through Aug. 30 at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA).

Represented throughout the main concourse at the airport, "Your Papers, Please" features a range of travel-related materials, including Charles Lindbergh's compass from the "Spirit of St. Louis," Gloria Swanson's travel cases and one of Erle Stanley Gardner's travel notebooks. These items are but a small representation of travel materials garnered from the collections at the Ransom Center that can be viewed in 10 display cases at ABIA.
