Miami, FL, USA
Description: A signed program for a lecture done by Halliburton on April 21, 1936, for the Vineland woman's club, signed in fountain pen "Halliburton". Size 5"x7" in fine condition. Richard Halliburton (January 9, 1900 – presumed dead after March 24, 1939) was an American traveler, adventurer, and author. Best known today for having swum the length of the Panama Canal —Halliburton was headline news for most of his brief career. His final and fatal adventure, an attempt to sail a Chinese junk, the Sea Dragon, across the Pacific Ocean from Hong Kong to the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco, made him legendary.
