Assistant Curator, Aeronautics

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 (10ยข) per xeroxed page.
