In a previous Rush Passport™ passport blog entry the obsession with celebrities was discussed. Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, the Department of State has given access to thousands of celebrity passport applications.
The celebrity passport application featured in this passport blog entry is none other than Babe Ruth. The Yankee slugger, also known as the Sultan of Swat and the Bambino filled out his passport application for the purpose of “baseball playing” in Havana, Cuba.
Not only does Babe Ruth’s passport application list his travel plans, but also mentions the size of his mouth and chin and many other details about the slugger.
Besides mentioning that Babe Ruth was traveling with his wife Helen who was born in El Paso, Texas, it lists his current address as 674 W 161 Street, NY. Ruth needed this passport to visit Havana, Cuba by way of Key West, Florida on October 27, 1920.
There is a section of the passport application titled “Description of Applicant” in which Ruth is listed as 27 years old, and standing 6 feet 1 ½ inches tall. On the passport application the following features are listed: medium forehead, brown eyes, short nose, large mouth, round chin, dark brown hair, dark complexion, round face with no distinguishing marks.
The passport application is also signed by an identifying witness and an affidavit from a non-relative.
Ruth’s passport application also comes complete with a picture of Ruth and of his wife.
