Great Boston Kite Festival: Planning Meeting


Committee for the Better Use of Air




Boston, MA


This series of photographs is presumably from an early Great Boston Kite Festival planning meeting and features original members of the Committee for the Better Use of Air. The Committee was a nonprofit formed by a group of artist and designer friends, including:

  • Lorna Dawson
  • Constance Ross Dupee
  • Fenton Hollander
  • H. Randolph Lewis
  • Clara Mack (soon to become Clara Wainwright)
  • Michael Sand
  • Francine Mills
  • William Wainwright (who Clara would soon marry)
  • John Taylor Williams

Special thanks to artist Darrah Bowden for her research, enabling us to identify many of the GBKF-related images in the collection.
