PHONE: 307-766-4114 [[stamp]] THE UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING LARAMIE EQUALITY [[/stamp]] THE UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING ARCHIVE OF CONTEMPORARY HISTORY BOX 3334 LARAMIE, WYOMING 82071 17 December 1976 Ms. Claudia M. Oakes Assistant Curator, Aeronautics National Air and Space Museum Smithsonian Institution Washington, D.C. 20560 Dear Ms. Oakes: Thank you for your letter, which has been forwarded to me for research and reply. In 1974 financial conditions unfortunately forced the Women's History Research Center, Inc., to distribute its collection to three depositories around the country. The University of Wyoming is fortunate to be the depository for the subject files, and all requests for those files, their special collections, and the Center itself, are being forwarded here. Thus, your referral to me. Unfortunately, I do not think that we have anything of value on women aviators either in the Women's History Research Center, Inc. collection or in our Transportation History Foundation. However, you might write to S. Johnson, c/o Marchetti, 35 Garden Ave., Toronoto, Ontario, Canada. She is writing a book on the subject. The Center did receive grants to publish three microfilm series: "Herstory," "Women and the Law," and "Women's Health/Mental Health." At the Center's request, I have included information on these microfilm publications, which are available through the distributor, Barbara Baisley, Northeast Micrographics, 27 Palmerwoods Circle, Branford, Connecticut 06405. Any questions on the microfilm should be directed to Ms. Baisley. I have also enclosed, also upon request of the Women's History Research Center, a list of their current publications. Any questions or orders regarding these publications should be mailed directly to the Women's History Research Center in Berkeley. Preliminary indexes of the subject file and special collection headings now processed and amiable for you here can be obtained upon request. Any inquiries concerning these receipts or the subject files of the collection should be directed to me. Material in these files is available through xeroxing, at cost, which is ten cents (10¢) per xeroxed page.
