Airport BY WILLIAM HEASLIP
Airport comes from the pen of a former member of the Royal Flying Corps,
in which Heaslip served during the World War, and therefore has none of the
self-consciousness ofan academic study. The artist, whose interest in flying
is unabated, went out to the Newark airport, and made some night flights
as the guest of the superintendent, both taking off and landing in the floodlights.
He has caught the tense hurry and the mysterious impressiveness of an airport at night in this brilliant impression.

Heaslip, who was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1898, came to New York
after his war service was over, and studied at the National Academy of Design and the
Art Students’ League. As he has pungently expressed it, “I won the Suydam Medal at the
former institution, and a point of view at the latter.” His prints are in many private collections.
He is a deft illustrator whose work has appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, Collier’s, and other magazines.
