Collection Aviation - Ben Lee
Object Name Print, Photographic
Scope & Content Large official Navy photograph file. 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:
