Object Name Album, Photograph
Scope & Content Large official Navy photograph file; not technically an album, but the equivalent. 17 B&W original photos of early naval aircraft, from collection of Lee's brother, William J. Lee. A letter from the donor (his son) states that William J. Lee was "an Acceptance Officer at the Curtis [sic] Aircraft Factory and these photos were in his personal file when he died in 1948." Most (possibly all) the photos are of Curtiss aircraft, some of them obscure:
