Archival Adventures: Aviation Brochures and Pamphlets Collection

Archival Adventures: Aviation Brochures and Pamphlets Collection

It's time for an adventure! Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.

This week, we're exploring the Aviation Brochures and Pamphlets Collection. The collection contains a variety of printed materials relating to the first half-century of aviation, primarily promotional materials published and distributed by manufacturers of airplanes and airplane parts. Represented in the collection are such well-known companies as Boeing, Lockheed, and Cessna, but the collection also holds materials from a number of lesser-known and/or defunct businesses. For more information about the collection, check out the finding aid here: https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=oai/lib.vt.edu/repositories/2/resources/1969.oai_ead.xml
