The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

A record hatch

This cartoon celebrates American aviation accomplishments in 1927. A smiling U.S. eagle wearing an Uncle Sam top hat looks at the hatched eggs in a nest marked "The Eagle's Brood." The nest is on a tree that rises from the North American mainland. Flying around the tree are high wing monoplanes marked "Byrd," "Maitland," "Lindy," and "Chamberlin."
