Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of several copies of Wynn's So You're going to Fly the Big Stuff, and a black scrapbook containing photographs of Wynn with aircraft and people, mostly captioned.
Biographical / Historical:
Captain Edward J. Wynn (born 1914) learned to fly at age 16, and barnstormed in the East and Middle West of the United States until the outbreak of World War II. In 1940 Wynn joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he was an instructor. After a few months, however, Wynn resinged his commission to take a job as a civilian ferry pilot. After forty-odd flights across the North Atlantic as a ferry pilot, he shifted to Pan American Airways where he ferried bombers to Africa by the South Atlantic Route. He later switched to TWA where he had the privilege of piloting Eleanor Roosevelt. After his stint with TWA he became a captain in the Air Transport Command. Wynn wrote several books about flying transport aircraft including Bombers Across, and So You're going to Fly the Big Stuff.
