Photographs
Date:
1917-1993
Scope and Contents:
These images, in conjunction with those of the follow-on National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which were taken at the Langley Research Center (NACA's Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory), comprise the images in this collection. There are slightly over 1,000 images, broken down into three groups. The first group is arranged by aircraft used by the NACA/NASA at Langley. The second group are images used in the book Engineer in Charge; these photos are of experiments and personalities associated with the NACA years at Langley, 1917-1958. (Note that aircraft photos from the book are found in the aircraft listings.) The third group covers the NASA years of 1958 to 1992 and feature experiments and personalities from that period. In addition to the photographs, most of the images have a corresponding negative which will be entered in the Smithsonian Institutions Office of Printing and Photographic Services negative numbering system.
Biographical / Historical:
Langley Research Center was established as the nation's first civilian aeronautics laboratory in 1917. Langley leads NASA initiatives in aviation safety, quiet aircraft technology, small aircraft transportation and aerospace vehicles system technology and supports NASA space programs with atmospheric research and technology testing and development.
