"South from Saipan": a 1945 National Geographic Article (Patrick Mears, Germany, 01/10/18 12:51 pm)

We have returned home from Mexico City. A long, 10+ hour flight, two train rides and a taxi ride.

On Saipan-Tinian in WWII, when we were in the bookshops of Calle Donceles, Mexico City, Connie found and bought for me the April 1945 issue of the National Geographic, which I read on the flight home. I was surprised and happy to see in it an article with many photos entitled "South from Saipan," authored by a certain W. Robert Moore, who is identified as the "Editorial Staff Correspondent in the Pacific." If anyone is WAISdom is interested, I can scan the piece in and send it to you for further distribution, as you see fit. It is a well-done piece with very interesting photos.

JE comments: Welcome home, Pat! W Robert Moore was a veteran National Geographic correspondent; I found references to his articles from as early as 1931.

Does anyone remember the Reagan quip when he inaugurated a new building for the National Geographic society?  He said something along the lines of "Well, finally they've found a place to store their old National Geographics." I Googled the quote, but came up empty.  Nobody, of course, throws away the National Geographic.

I'd love to see the Saipan piece.  The NG has a full online archive, but you must subscribe.  On a less copyright-sensitive topic, Pat Mears has sent a gallery of Connie's photos of the Trotsky house in Coyoacán.  I'll get them up on WAIS in the coming days.

Thanks to you both!
