Scope and Contents

This collection consists of material documenting the development of airborne radar and related avionics assembled by Zdzislaw I. Szewczyk, an engineer with the General Motors Company. The material consists of a 35-volume catalog of ready reference information on radar hardware, arranged by country and manufacturer. Catalog entries refer to specific supporting documents that comprise the remainder of the collection. The remaining material consists of technical manuals, books, periodicals, and technical pamphlets, as well as radar hardware which has been accessioned separately into the National Air and Space Museum artifact collection. In September 1999, an additional notebook and four books were donated and added to this collection.
