T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) in Palestine with Lowell Thomas – From “Journey to the Land of Our Past with the Lowell Thomas Travelogues”

As a war correspondent, Lowell Thomas and his cameraman Harry Chase met and traveled with archaeologist, poet and British Army officer T.E. Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia, in Palestine. Returning home in 1919, Thomas put together a legendary travelogue that he took around the world and captured the imaginations of millions. Imagine, if you were living then, flying over the Pyramids of Egypt. New York’s Marist College has paired documents, film, photos and audio from its vast collection with the original script in its online exhibit  “Journey to the Land of Our Past with the Lowell Thomas Travelogues.”
