Bondy & Kitsi’s wedding photos (including Harold Bixby)


China's WingsA few weeks ago at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, I was honored to shake hands with Ben Barrett, one of Harold M. Bixby’s 19 grandchildren.

He showed me his scrapbook documenting the Bixby family’s adventures in China, 1933-1938, and my eyes popped out over these classics of William Langhorne Bond’s 1935 wedding with Katharine Dunlop, none of which I’d seen before. Ben was kind enough to share them with me, and with Bond family permission, I’m sharing them here. (I wish I’d had the bride and groom photo to use in China’s Wings.)
