1. Check out Strato Lizzie, the mascot for Transcontinental Western Airline (TWA), pictured here being shown off in her special traveling case at the 1940 World’s Fair cat show. The picture is currently in our World’s Fair collection in the Manuscripts and Archives Division, and is just cute. The description from 1940 says Strato “put in more air hours than most human beings.” No explanation of what the “Cat Realist Society” is, though. Too bad. Enjoy - happy Caturday!!

    Better than the Cat Surrealist Society, I’d venture. Found a mention of the CRS on Google, though.
