Bob Hope Tours in Alaska

Frank Armstrong Papers

Ralph Scott

Bob Hope was known for touring American troops overseas. This photograph was taken in the 1950’s when Hope was visiting Air Force Bases in the Alaska. It is probably taken at Elmendorf Air Force Base. He is show here with Peggy Armstrong, the wife of the Air Force Alaskan Air Commander Frank Armstrong. Please note the interesting contrasting footwear among the two individuals in the photograph. You just have to love those strappy sandals!
