The Hensons Visit Chicago

In July 1946, the family of William Alvin Henson II, navigator on the Buslee crew, visited Ed Farrar and the Buslee family in Chicago.  Ed was the only survivor of the mid-air collision that took the lives of William Henson and John Oliver Buslee.

On July 6, the group visited the College Inn in Chicago.
