Before Planes of Fame was Planes of Fame, it was called "The Air Museum". In the mid 1960s it was transitioning from its first location in what was a semi-enclosed shed in Claremont into two large hangars at Ontario International Airport.

 

My father worked for Lockheed in publications at the time, and took on the role of Editor of what became a small monthly newsletter sent out in the mail to an international subscriber base of people who had visited the museum and wanted to keep up with activities there. I remember "helping" in our monthly ritual of folding the newest issue, inserting them into envelopes and addressing and stamping them as we sat in our livingroom.

 

I asked my father (now 89) if he had any of the original copies and he produced a scrapbook with quite a bit of the old material. I will scan and post what is there as time permits. Much of it is now yellow and faded, but provides a glimpse of what existed in the way of social networking long before the internet.

 

This first installment is the Museum's catalog from 1965.
