Ephemera

Scope and Contents

This collection contains aviation ephemera from around the world, although primarily America. Most of the items are collectors cards which feature famous aviators and airplanes. They came from chewing gum and cigarette packages and feature a colorful picture of the subject on the front and a history of important events on the back. Some of the cards are mounted in booklets specifically designed for this purpose. There are two additional types of collectibles in the scrapbook; one is a series called 'War News Pictures' which details allied victories during World War II. It encourages the collectors to keep a permanent record of the events during the war. The other collectible is a series of American propaganda stamps from WWII. They depict the enemy in colorful pictures and urge the collectors to continue supporting the war effort. Miscellaneous items in the scrapbook include matchbook covers advertising Naval aviation recruiting and odd souvenirs.
