Super-Sonic Transport (SST) Collection Whitehead
During the 1960s and 1970s there was an effort to establish a program to produce a supersonic transport in the United States. William Scholl Whitehead of the firm Ives, Whitehead and Co., was heavily involved in this endeavor.
The collection consists of correspondence, reports, brochures, articles and a scrapbook dealing with this effort. Much of the correspondence is concerned with efforts to obtain support and funding for the project from private industry and the United States Congress. The scrapbook, with index, is a collection of newspaper and magazine clippings about the SST project and includes technical, political, financial and public relations articles.
