Juan Trippe and Pan American World Airways history montagePan Am Historical Foundation for nearly 30 years has preserved the unique legacy of Pan American World Airways, promoting the history of the people who made Pan Am "The World’s Most Experienced Airline." In addition to special archives projects, film preservation, the Pan Am. org history website, community events and research grants, the Foundation publishes a newsletter and its iconic Pan Am annual calendar for members. The Pan Am Historical Foundation seeks to encourage the work of  other Pan Am groups but is a separate entity.
