Provenance Statement

The History of Aviation Small Collections, established in October of 2013, is composed of collections donated to and/or created by the archive between 1963 and 2022, and is expected to continue to grow as new materials arrive. Each individual collection is accessioned as a unique collection with its own collection number and has its own record of acquisition. Please consult the individual collection for information on its donors and date of acquisition.

Note to the Researcher

The History of Aviation Small Collections is an artificial creation and is meant as a repository for collections that are too small to have their own shelf location. The researcher should treat each collection in it as a separate entity, and refer to that specific collection in all matters of citation.

Minimal preservation was applied where needed such as removing rusted fasteners, housing photographs, negatives, and slides in polypropylene sleeves or photographs were interleaved with acid-free paper.

Material Removed List

Duplicate materials and some items deemed out of the focus of the collection were removed and deaccessioned.
