I am in the process of identifying archival and manuscript collections that I will consult during my research in the history of air navigation. Here are finding aids and guides for collections related to three key people, all pioneers of aerial navigation and early presidents of the Institute of Navigation: Philip Van Horn Weems, Edwin A. Link, and Samuel Herrick.
- The Weems, Phillip [sic] Van Horn (1899-1979) Papers, 1899-1965 at the Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville, Tennessee
- The Edwin A. and Marion Link Special Collection at the Florida Institute of Technology’s Evans Library in Melbourne, Florida
- The Edwin A. Link and Marion Clayton Link Collections at Binghamton University Libraries’ Special Collections, in Binghamton, New York
- The Samuel Herrick Papers, 1930-1974, at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University’s Special Collections, in Blacksburg, Virginia
