Scope and Contents:
This collection is the files of Robert K. Friedman (Chief, FAA SST Support Division) on the development of commercial SST capability in the United States. The material consists primarily of technical and research reports, but also press releases, marketing procedures, proposals, assessment and evaluation reports on the entire SST program. The collection also includes material on foreign and U. S. military research, applications of supersonics and sonic booms and marketing and presentation material from Lockheed, Boeing, North American and Convair. This collection also has miscellaneous items including copies of the first FAA anti-hijacking poster, seven open reel audio tapes (one on SST program, six on hijacking), and a set of charts used for demonstration and training on management of aircraft design and procurement.
Biographical / Historical:
The United States' Supersonic Transport (SST) program was initiated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in 1963. The program aimed for a Mach 2+ aircraft capable of carrying c.300 passengers with intercontinental range. The US aimed to outstrip the British Aerospace/Aerospatiale Concorde and Soviet Tu 144 programs through the use of advanced technology and materials. By the late 1960s contracts had been let to prime contractors Boeing (airframe) and General Electric (engines) but the program was four to five years behind the European and Soviet efforts, which had graduated to supersonic flight testing while the US program had yet to pass beyond the mockup stage. In 1971 the slow pace of technical; development, environmental concerns, high costs, and questions over the commercial feasibility of the aircraft led Congress to cancel the program.

Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of the following secondary source material relating to Alfred Lawson: photographs, newspaper and magazine articles, biographical information, advertisements, and his published writings. There are also some large broadsides relating to his lectures on Lawsonomy.
Biographical / Historical:
Alfred William Lawson (1869-1954) was born in London, England. Three weeks after Lawson's birth his family moved to Ontario, Canada. In 1872 the family moved again, this time to Detroit Michigan, where they became American citizens. In 1908, after a career in baseball, Lawson settled in Philadelphia where he launched a popular aviation magazine entitled _Fly_. Two years later he moved to New York City and started another aviation magazine entitled _Aircraft_. When the United States entered World War I, Lawson established the Lawson Aircraft Corporation to build training planes for the Army. Two prototypes were built, but orders were not contracted before the War was over. Lawson then formed the Lawson Airplane Company to build aircraft for the Lawson Air Transportation Company. The Lawson C-2, which Lawson called an airliner, was completed in August 1919. The following week it traveled from Milwaukee to New York City and Washington, DC. In 1920, on the basis of the success of his first airliner, Lawson designed a larger aircraft. Completed in 1921, an attempt to takeoff from a small field resulted in a crash and the end of his company. In 1928 Lawson made another attempt to enter the airline industry with a 100 passenger design, but it was never completed. Lawson spent his remaining 23 years promoting his economic philosophy, 'Lawsonomy.'

Biographical / Historical:
The Flight Safety Foundation (FSF), founded in 1945, is dedicated to improving safety in aviation. The FSF advises airlines on accident investigation, airport safety, operational precautions, and safety in weather forecasting. Jerome F. Lederer (1902-?) was an aeronautical engineer with degrees from New York University (BS, 1924; MS, 1925). After working for the United States Air Mail Service (Aeronautical Engineer 1926-27; Director of Aeronautical Technology 1927-29), Aeronautical Insurance Underwriters (Chief Engineer 1929-40), and the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) (Director, Safety Bureau 1940-42; Airline War Training Institute 1942-44), he joined FSF as Technical Director 1948-67). Following his tenure at FSF, Lederer moved to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) (Director of Manned Space Flight Safety 1967-70; Director of Safety 1970-72) and the Institute for Safety and Systems Management, University of Southern California (Adjunct Professor 1974- ).
