Scope and content
Manuscript in commemoration of the Golden Anniversary of Powered Flight in Canada. This is a collection of transcripts of 67 interviews conducted with pilots and flight engineers of the golden age of bush flying. These first person narrations are biographical and the manuscript's multiple parts constitute different experiences and perspectives of the birth and development of Canadian aviation, forming a comprehensive body of literature relating to the history of the Canadian aviation industry. The 64 transcripts are photocopies and vary in length. Also enclosed are photocopies of newspaper stories featuring members of the Canadian Aviation Hall of Fame, as well as a brief description of the manuscript and its origins by Tony Cashman.
The manuscript is in good condition, although there are instances where the typewriter ink has begun to fade.
