An original manual belonging to Connie Hill, a 1961 graduate of American Airlines' Stewardess College in Fort Worth, TX. Internal dating suggests these guides were first published in 1959, the college's inaugural year of operation, with this copy containing several updates going into 1961. The manual is split into 10 tabbed sections including administrative, emergency, and basic workplace procedure as well as illustrated chapters on individual aircraft with cabin diagrams of each, including: Electra, Convair, DC-6, DC-7, and Boeing (models 123 and 720). Section 5-1 details "STEWARDESS QUALIFICATIONS" and mandates that all Stewardess' be unmarried, between 5' 3" and 5' 8" in height, and maintain a weight of 105-135 pounds as a term of employment. Additionally laid in are 2, identical copies of a congraluatory, illustrated card marking the award of Hill's stewardess wings, dated December 19, 1961. An uncommon document on travel, the airlines, and women in the workplace.
