In 2004, UnitedÕs Archive Coordinator, Barbara Hanson
embarked on a project to identify and sort the United Onboard DivisionÕs extensive collection of flight attendant uniforms dating back to the founding date of the profession on May 15, 1930.
sought out retired flight attendants to assist in the volunteer project.
Just when the project had gained great momentum, the archive program at United was cancelled early in 2005 and Hanson
opted to retire.
Hanson, who is now UAHFÕs Executive Vice President of the UAHF, headed up the effort again enlisting the help of the volunteers who assisted previously.
