C. Ashby Shoop Aviation Collection
The C. Ashby Shoop Aviation Collection is a small collection containing visual and textual materials related to various aircraft, circa 1929-1970s.
Nine photographs in the collection depict primarily aircraft, including the Northrop YB-49, Boeing B-17, Boeing/Northop B-2, Cessna CG-2, and Cessna CW-6. Other images depict General Dynamics AGM-109 and one photograph features a pilot, possibly Shoop, exiting an obscured aircraft. The photographs are 8x10" and are a mix of color and black-and-white prints.
Other materials include clippings about Beechcraft, booklets and a clipping about the B-2, and assorted photocopies and lithographs of various aircraft. Also included is a single sheet document that includes the lyrics for "The Grasshopper Song," 1942.
Digitized Materials: Two photographs of Cessna aircraft and the song lyrics have been digitized from this collection.
