This handsome young pilot who is all decked out in a leather jacket, ascot, aviator’s cap and goggles is Vince Karpinski of Little Falls, Minnesota. We do not know too much about Vince. He is listed in the 1938-39 Morrison County Directory as a renter at Box 100, Route 3, in Little Falls. Handwritten on the back of the photograph is a note indicating that Vince was a good friend of Edward B. Woodworth. Woodworth is also listed in the 1938-39 directory as a resident of Little Falls. He was a student at that time and was renting at 705 Southeast Third. If you have any information on Vince Karpinski, we would love to hear from you (320/632-4007; firstname.lastname@example.org).
