BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Aaron L. Binenkorb was born in 1903 in New York City and grew up in Middletown, New York. Following his graduation from Cornell in 1925, he worked for a furniture company in Buffalo and then as owner/operator of E.L. Tichenor Company, Inc., a wholesale paper supplier based in Middletown. After retiring from his business in 1950, Binenkorb traveled widely on cruise ships and pursued his interests in photography and cinematography by making travel films. From 1960 until 1980, Binenkorb was a port lecturer and showed his films on cruise lines. His film "Disneyland" won an award in an international film competition, and his film about the Pitcairn Islands, "The Lonely Islands," won an award from the Metropolitan Motion Picture Club of New York City.
