Description
The Roy A. Anderson Papers, 1909-1995 (10 boxes) document the career and life of Anderson during the second half of the twentieth century, and the early history of Lockheed Corporation from the early 1900s into the 1990s. The collection is divided into two series, Lockheed Corporation and Personal, with the bulk of materials concentrated in the Lockheed Corporation series. The bulk of the collection consists of photographs, correspondence, clippings, and ephemera. The collection is especially rich in photographic prints of early Lockheed aircraft, employees, and customers. The collection is small; as such, it does not document the detailed activities of the Lockheed Corporation.
