Mary Ann Odenthal United Airlines Flight Attendant Collection

 Collection — Folder: 1
Identifier: 2007-02-15
The Mary Ann Odenthal United Airlines Flight Attendant Collection is comprised of a small amount of textual materials and four (4) color photographs. The material was collected by Odenthal during her service as a Horizon Air flight attendant (1988-1991) and United Airlines (UAL) flight attendant (1991-2006).

The photographs are 4x5" and are candid snapshots. One depicts a Horizon Air aircraft parked on tarmac and the other three depict United Airlines personnel, including Odenthal. The photographs do not include any captions or identifying information, such as names, dates, or locations.

Additional materials include Odenthal's 1992 UAL identity badge (with photo); assorted UAL ephemera, such as luggage tags, decals, ticket envelope, and two copies of the booklet, Terms of Flying, which is a small language reference guide for flight terms in English, French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, Dutch, and German. There are also three (3) booklets pertaining to UAL uniforms, including "Series 30-5 Flight Attendant Uniform Regulations," 2002; "Look to the Future: Corporate Apparel Collection by Brookhurst, Inc.," circa 2001; and "Choice - A POint System Tailored for You: Corporate Apparel Collection by Brookhurst," circa 1995.
