The Kiwi Club Uniform Collections
The Kiwi Club has two official uniform collections.
(1) The Archival Collection that is stored at a secure location at AA Headquarters. It is managed by Linda Hutchinson Timberlake.
(2)The Kiwi Club Uniform Collection is maintained by the Traveling Uniform Collection Coordinator, Chris Strommer Moeckel: firstname.lastname@example.org. This collection is the one that is available for use by Kiwi members. Recently the collection has greatly expanded and now has full uniforms from all eras and are in most sizes!
If you would like to borrow the uniforms for a special event contact Chris.
Recently, several of the traveling uniforms were on display in Las Vegas, in an event sponsored by American Airlines Advantage and Barclays Bank. The Las Vegas Chapter assembled the display and hosted the uniform portion of the event. The LAS Kiwis represented the Kiwi Club in a fantastic way, explaining the history of the uniforms on display and sharing their personal experiences.
