Caption: Some of the Lambert family gathers at Forest Park on Oct. 12, 1932, before a demonstration of air-defense searchlights that evening. Shown are, from left, Myrtle Lambert, Lambert's wife; Army Lt. Col. John Paegelow of Scott Field; Myrtle Lambert, the Lambert's daughter; Albert Bond Lambert; and Army Col. J.A. Green. More than 10,000 people went to the park that night to watch five searchlights find a dirigible and Army airplanes that flew overhead. A Post-Dispatch reporter who flew in one of the planes wrote that the beams provided "blinding blue radiance." (Post-Dispatch)
