Scope and Contents
This collection was donated by the son of Jack Scaturro who worked at Roosevelt Field during the 1920s and 1930s. Mr. Scaturro took snapshots of the facility's workers, friends and transient pilots, most notably the flamboyant Roscoe Turner and his aircraft the Gilmore Lion. The collection consists of 17 photos of the following aircraft: Aeronca C-1; Burnelli GX-3; Corsair O2U-1; DH-4; Fleet PT-6; Sikorsky C-6; Lockheed: Lindbergh's Sirius, Turner's NC 7954 and Lockheed Model 3 Air Express 'Gilmore Lion;' and a Loening COA-1. There are two photos of the Goodyear airship 'Vigilant' and one photo of the airship 'Los Angeles.' There is also a small scrapbook of newspaper clippings of aircraft disasters near Roosevelt Field and Westbury, Long Island.
