Speakers

Julia Lauria-Blum

Julia Lauria-Blum is the Editor-In-Chief for the Metropolitan Airport News. Julia earned her degree in the Visual Arts from SUNY New Paltz and has always had an interest in the women aviation pioneers that paved the way for so many.

Her interest led her to research the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) from the WWII era. In 2001 she curated the permanent WASP exhibit at the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY. Also, at the American Airpower Museum, Julia curated the “Women Who Brought the War Home, Women War Correspondents, WWII’.

Julia is the former curatorial assistant at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY where she worked on many of exhibit’s visuals, as well as the museum’s historical archives.
