Abstract

"What's in a Picture?" piece on Maine state senator Arnold Peabody of Houlton, who is shown hauling a biplane with his tractor in 1940. Franklin Delano Roosevelt found a way around the country's Neutrality Acts by implementing Cash and Carry revisions in 1939 that allowed American warplanes to be flown to Houlton and then hauled overland to Canada. From there, the planes flew to Allied transport ships in Nova Scotia before departing for the war overseas.
