I decided to show a bit of the scope of the project, and let you have a "behind the scenes" view of what I'm working with. Mostly I'm working out of four scrapbooks which contain the flying with some racing. One of the scrapbooks is all cars. One of the scrapbooks is all family. The 3-ring binder that you see open contains all the letters (yes, they're archival separators), and I've posted a photo of the logbook, which it looks like he re-transcribed at some later date. Also, you can see his journal from 1920, and his Aero Club and Naval Aviator's certificates. The tiny black book contains candy recipes. We'll talk about that in a year or so.
